Recipe Notes //

This roasted beet salad is for my fellow beet lovers who love a lazy yet delicious recipe. The flavors are fresh and unique. The zesty lemon, sweet beet, and creamy avocado are a divine combination! This salad is hearty, so it’s perfect for bringing to summer parties or barbecues and won’t get soggy or wilt because literally, nothing is worse than a soggy salad! This recipe is not labor-intensive; however, the proper way to roast beets is a slow burn, no pun intended.

The best way to roast a beet is low and slow. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment. Give your beets a good rinse and scrub off all the dirt. Pop the beets in the oven (whole beet) and let them roast away for 2 to 3 hours or until fork-tender. I suggest roasting the beets ahead of time when you know you have a few hours to kill at home. Once the beets are fork-tender, remove the skin and cube the beets. The beets will keep in the fridge for up to a day before assembling the salad.

This roasted beet salad with cubed avocado lemon zest and fresh mint leaves will be on repeat in our house this Summer and hopefully yours too!

  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 2 Hours
  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Servings 1x


Units Scale

Begin by roasting your beets at 350 degrees for about 2 hours. Low and slow is the way to go when roasting beets. Once you can stick a fork through them with little resistance, they are ready! Cut into cubes and set in the fridge to chill.

Next, cube avocado and add it to your beets in a bowl. Dress the beets and avocado with lemon olive dressing, top with lemon zest, salt, fresh mint, and crushed pistachios. Enjoy!
