Roasted Beet and Yam Salad With Balsamic Glaze and Blood Orange

I’ve been a beet lover my entire life. I think it was because of my Grandma Dub’s beets, fresh from the garden, we’d boil them and my job would be to pull the skin off after they were cooked (and put into cold water). Sort of like you do when canning peaches! So today we’re sharing our favorite fall and winter Roasted Beet and Yam Salad with Balsamic Glaze and Blood Orange.

You can roast the beets and yams ahead of time, slice and store them in air tight containers in the fridge. They’ll last 3-4 days in the fridge.

If you want to assemble the whole salad early in the day for later on, don’t add the dressing until right before serving.
