A Refreshing Roasted Beet, Fig, and Orange Salad

July 8, 2011

This refreshing roasted beet, fig, and orange salad is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer's day.  Roasting beets brings out their natural sweetness and they pair perfectly with the fruity figs and the citrusy orange segments.  Goat cheese also works well with this salad if you do not have any feta on hand.  This light and flavorful salad works well as a side dish but could also be the main star of the meal.
