Warm Beet Salad with Spinach

by: Lynn Burns

This beet salad is one of my current favorite INSPIRED TO HEALTH recipes.

I’ve been trying to incorporate more heart healthy beets into my diet and this is a simple and delicious way to do so!



2 large beets sautéed or steamed (chopped)
2 garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
6 cups of raw spinach (washed)
2/3 cup raw walnuts (chopped)
1/2 fresh juice from an orange
1 tbsp walnut oil
1 tsp  maple syrup
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Hint of Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


In medium size skillet heat 1 tbsp. of grape seed or coconut oil. Sauté onion (until slightly translucent) and garlic on low, adding beets in after semi soft.  Sauté mix for for approx 3 minutes on low adding walnuts. I love to first spiralize raw beets and then chop.

In separate bowl combine and mix red walnut oil (or olive/oil of your choice),  juice from orange (I like to use a wooden citrus reamer), & maple syrup. Add to spinach and toss.

Next combine warm beet mixture with a light sprinkle of feta on top.

Full foody disclosure – I’m a true intuative “chef” in terms of amounts. I rarely follow a recipe but try to document my inspired concoctions to share for this blog. This recipe is meant to be used as a “guideline” for you to follow. We all have our unique and individual taste buds! I encourage you to tweak as you experiment adding upon or making your own creative substitutions!

I use all organic or locally sourced ingredients.
