Roasted Beet, Artichoke, and Sweet Corn Salad

Roasted Beet, Artichoke, and Sweet Corn Salad - 3

I have to (shamefully) admit that before this salad, I’ve never eaten beets before. And, despite the fact that they’ve been abundant at our CSA every week this summer, I’ve avoided them. Finally, last week I decided that I needed to face my fear of beets…so I turned to my friends on Twitter and asked for beet recipes. The response was overwhelming! But even more than that, I couldn’t believe how great all of the recipes sounded. Full of new inspiration, I threw together this salad based on several different recipes and what I had on hand in my pantry. I couldn’t believe how full of flavor it was and what I’ve been missing by avoiding beets…I certainly won’t be avoiding them anymore!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a small baking sheet with foil. Peel the beets and chop them into small chunks. Place on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and garlic powder. Bake 30-40 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the ears of corn just until tender, 3-4 minutes. Remove from the water and let cool before cutting the corn off the cob. Quarter the artichoke hearts.

  3. Great fall salad! I have to admit I have never cooked with beets either, maybe they are just not an east coast thing. You have convinced me to try them, though..thanks:)

  5. That looks lovely! Last year I gave all of the beets from our CSA to my mom because I didn’t want to deal with them. This year, I’ll have to give them a try.
