Ingredients

  • 3 medium carrots peeled and sliced 1/4-in thick
  • 3 medium beets peeled and sliced 1/4-in thick
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup almonds toasted
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • BALSAMIC-MAPLE DRESSING:
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Toss carrots and beets with maple syrup and olive oil until coated. Spread in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Roast at 400F 20-25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from oven and cool.
  • Once vegetables are cooled, toss in a large bowl with spinach, almonds, and goat cheese. Set aside for a moment to make the dressing.

  • Just before serving, drizzle dressing over spinach salad and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
