Peach, Pluot & Roasted Vegetable Salad Recipe

Peach, Pluot, and Roasted Vegetable Salad

Somehow, someway I’ve gotten it into my head that learning to like beets will make me a better person. They’ll make me smarter, funnier, have more friends…or at the least give me one more vegetable to add to my healthy eating repertoire.

Liking beets just doesn’t come naturally to me the way it does to some people, but I’ve found that when you combine vegetables you don’t like with things you’re completely enamored with…they suddenly become tolerable. So in this salad I’ve tossed them with summer’s most delicious stone fruits – peaches and pluots – as well as some feta cheese, whose strong tangy flavor pairs perfectly with the beets’ sweet earthy tones. The resulting dish is so tasty that even I, a former beet hater, can look forward to eating it.
