There are some flavors that just go together. They are classic dishes. Beet Salad is one of those dishes. This roasted beet and carrot salad recipe is nothing revolutionary, but it is delicious. The sweetness of the beets are paired perfectly with the bitterness of the arugula, the saltiness of the cheese, the savoriness of the walnuts, and the tartness of the vinegar to give your senses a taste explosion in every bite. This salad is easy to create, yet makes an elegant addition to any summer meal. It looks pretty, tastes fantastic, and appears to be extremely fancy; what more could you want from a dish? Enjoy!
