This was an excellent salad, however I hate beets. I omitted those and added artichoke hearts instead. YUM! I will definately make this again!

My company and I throughly enjoyed this salad. I used butter lettuce instead of romaine, and added walnuts and crumbled goat cheese. Very tasty!

This is really wonderful for a diet item to be added on top of cottage cheese and add top with goodies to look good,

Liked the combination of flavors and colors. This was really a pretty salad. Will make again. Used regular spring mix instead of romaine and real bacon bits as a timesaver.

I'm new to beets and have never had them in a salad, so I wanted to start with a quick, no fuss recipe to test them out. This is a great one. Simple, not a lot of prep, and tastes fantastic!
