"I tried this salad in Rehoboth Beach, DE and vowed to duplicate it! It is so addicting with the crunchy sugared walnuts and creamy goat cheese. The vinaigrette is to die for. I don't even care for beets! Great for holiday dinners. A must try!"

THIS WAS WONDERFUL! I SERVED IT TO GUESTS, THAT RAVED ABOUT IT. IT DID NOT SAY WHAT TO DO WITH THE BEET JUICE! SO, I ADDED A BIT TO THE DRESSING MIXTURE.

I gave it 4 stars because my husband and 1 of my 3 kids (all teenagers) didn't love it. But I thought it was wonderful!

I had a craving goat cheese and this easy salad did the trick. Served it with a simple steak for dinner. Easy to halve. Didn't change a thing. DELICIOUS!!!
