It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!
We love using Chicken Schmaltz as a base for salad dressings and it works exceptionally well will this beet salad. Don't ask us why it just does. Surprisingly fulfilling too. Hint make the dressing first and put it in the fridge before making this simple beet salad with goat cheese recipe.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Add sliced beets to a baking sheet and coat with 1-2 TBSP melted duck fat (use as much is needed to coat the beets). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for 35-40 minutes.
Assemble the lettuce, goat cheese and sliced onion in a salad bowl.
Add the roasted beets.
5. For the dressing melt the duck fat in a saucepan over medium heat. When hot add the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and use a whisk or a wooden spoon to mix. Adjust the duck fat and balsamic vinegar ratio to your liking.
Pour the hot dressing over the salad, tossing to coat completely.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
Note: Omit the goat cheese for a Paleo salad.
