Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

About: Roasted Beet Salad is a personal favorite of the chef’s. She fancies the interplay of taste and texture as the pulpy sweetness of the beets blends with the meaty muscle of the trout. The deep red of the beets and mellow green of the avocados light up a vibrant palette of colors that lend visual appeal to the dish. Over the years, Christine has added horseradish for extra clout and concocted a tasty champaigne vinaigrette whose heady accents of mustard and honey add punch to each forkful.
