Roasted Beet Salad

Good morning Darlings,

Today’s recipe was contributed by a good friend and guest blogger. My friend, Mother Goose, (true story, it’s on her birth certificate), contributed this recipe as an accompaniment to my Goat Cheese Stuffed Chimichurri Chicken Piccata

While I paired my dish with Brown Rice and Peas, she opted for a delicious, light salad. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
