Recipe by Donna
"This is a delicious and easy salad which takes little time and is a great meatless main course. It uses beets, goat cheese, candied walnuts and baby greens. For a main dish salad, add chicken. Feel free to include more of your favorite vegetables too."

beets - scrubbed, trimmed and cut in half
1 (10 ounce) package
mixed baby salad greens
frozen orange juice concentrate
extra-virgin olive oil
UPDATE: I love, love this salad. For the beets I like to roast them (as you would a potato-1 hour @ 450, wrapped whole in foil) then cubed marinated overnight in vinegar (balsalmic or red wine). I also sub feta for the goat cheese. 9/15/2007:Whenever I go to Cheesecake Factory this is the salad I order. Thank you so much for this recipe (its going to save me so much $ to make it at home). The only changes I would make is to substitute pecans for the walnuts and add some roasted asparagus spears.
Good, but nothing spectacular
Very tasty. For the dressing instead of OJ concentrate I used a sprits of regular OJ and it tasted just fine. Combination of the goat cheese, beets, and nuts really pops your taste buds. Loved it.
This recipes was awesome. I used chilled canned beets instead of fresh beets and they were just as good.
I didn't have any walnuts, so I substituted pecans. Also, I left out the orange juice as I didn't have it but the magical mixture here is the beets/goat cheese/candied nuts. Absolutely heavenly salad!
great salad- a hit at a big summer potluck. roasted the beets for 1 hour- 400 degrees. doubled the walnuts, used feta cheese and added orange slices as well. also- i just made a basic balsamic vinaigrette and added orange juice to the beets to give a citrus punch.
This recipe is very unique and flavorful. Definitely 5 stars. Took reviewers advice and used feta cheese. No one will be disappointed with this recipe. Everyone absolutely loved it.
This was a great dish. I roasted the beets in the oven, used warmed spinach instead of greens, and added a little port wine to the dressing instead of syrup. All these changes were made only because I make the recipe so much that I needed to change it up a bit. The original recipe is amazing as well.
