As summer comes to an end, this fresh salad is a great way to capture the last of the sunny months. Citrus brings out the best in beets and compliments the sweet blueberries. The creamy dressing pairs nicely with other fruit as well, I like to make a little extra for my lunch or breakfast.
1 pint blueberries
½ cup plain yogurt
Juice from 1 orange, divided
¼ cup feta cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Remove the tops and roots of the beets and peel them. Cut beets into ½-inch chunks and spread out on a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil and thyme. Roast for 30-40 minutes, until tender.
Remove from the oven and toss immediately with half of the orange juice, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, remaining orange juice and another pinch of pepper. Add blueberries and beets and toss until well-combined. Top with feta cheese and serve.
