Superfood roasted beet and berry salad with goat cheese and raspberry-fig vinaigrette – a light and healthful dish perfect for Spring.

Beet and Berry Salad with Raspberry-Fig Vinaigrette | #healthy #vegetarian #recipe

More often than not, at the end of a long day in the kitchen, all I want is some fresh vegetation in my belly – in spite of the fact that I have all sorts of filling meals prepared and packed conveniently in the fridge.

I typically have roasted beets or sweet potatoes (or even a plethora of mixed roasted veggies) on hand, so come feeding time, I simply plunk some greens down in a huge bowl, add said roasted veg, a fruit or three, a cheese, often some nuts, and drizzle with homemade dressing that I whip out in my little Magic Bullet blender.

Which brings me to my next point: roasting veggies ahead of time for a busy week.

When I have the forethought to do so, I snag a bunch of beets from the grocery store, chop one up, wrap the hunks into a big foil packet, and roast at 375 for 45 to 50 minutes.

One big beet will last me a full workweek, and chopping the thing before roasting cuts down on the bake time significantly.

This is convenience, my friends.

Plus, there’s nothing like the satisfaction after a healthful meal – feeling full but not too full, knowing you’ll wake up feeling ready to take on the world the next day.

If you’ve tried my Winter Citrus Roasted Beet Salad or my Roasted Beet and Arugula Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette, I just know you’ll love this one too!

Recipe Adaptations:

Change ups to the recipe? Here are some ideas:

  • Omit any of the berries
  • Substitute blueberries for raspberries in the vinaigrette
  • Add grilled chicken for animal protein
  • Use kale, spinach, or green blend of choice as opposed to spring greens.

I’ve been blown away by how tasty berries have been lately.

Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are marvelous when they’re in season and are most excellent in salads.

The raspberry-fig vinaigrette is the real meal maker here, tying all the ingredients together into a lovely fresh flavor meld.

I hope you enjoy this flavor fest!

Questions and Reviews

  1. Berries & beets go so well together! And yet I’ve never put them in a salad … must fix that! Especially if that vinaigrette is involved! I seem to always have fig preserves hanging out in my fridge … now I know a way to put them to use!

  2. I second the gorgeous salad. I love all the berries in it and the beets as well. I’ve had a major love of beets since I was an infant haha.

  3. I’m glad you said that…everything’s fitting a little more snugly today so I hit spin class pronto. 🙂 This salad is so gorgeous and I love that eating healthfully after indulging can be as delicious as this!! And fig preserves in that vinaigrette sounds like heaven!

  4. Berries and beets sound so yummy! I love the idea of keeping warm salad toppings in the freezer for convenience 🙂

  5. Raspberry-fig vinaigrette? That sounds SO good! I have all the ingredients except the raspberries and am thinking about trying it with strawberries instead because I must have it in my belly ASAP!

  6. Don’t even get me started on how bloated I am right now. I’ve been way too generous with myself during all of my recent travels and it is definitely starting to show.

    I need to roast me a large beet and eat nothing but this beautiful salad for at least the next month! That vinaigrette sounds incredible!

  7. I love how beautiful and simple this salad is! You’re right, it’s perfect for after the Mother’s Day brunching sprees 😉
