Beet & Blue Cheese Spinach Salad


I always like to have a fresh crisp salad with my meal, this is especially true in the winter when I'm missing garden fresh produce. But I also like to try to eat what is in season, making this a perfect winter salad because it uses cold weather greens and root veggies. This easy, rich beet salad has a crisp, clean and nutty taste a perfect accompaniment to heavier holiday fare.  Here's my recipe:
