Beets often get a bad rap because they are messy. Granted they can stain your clothes but with the right equipment (an apron and gloves), they are worth the risk. Beets have a sweet and earthy flavor which pairs nicely with anything tart. If you are against eating them, I urge you to try one of these delicious beet salads. I bet they will change your mind.
Roasted Beets with Orange Wedges
The sweetness of the beets pairs perfectly with the acidity of the orange wedges and red wine vinegar.
Beets with Shallot and Tarragon Vinaigrette
Serve these marinated beets over mixed greens for a simple salad.
Spinach and Beets with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
If you are not a fan of blue cheese, substitute with feta cheese.

Serve this salad instead of coleslaw at your next barbecue
Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Maple Pecans
This is one of my all time favorite salads...enough said.
