Add beets to your healthy diet with this amazing Roasted Beet Salad with Beet Greens and Feta recipe:

Ingredients:
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
7 medium-large beets (about 3 inches in diameter) with greens
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons chopped drained capers
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 3 ounces)

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk oil, vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl to blend. Season dressing generously with salt and pepper.

Cut green tops off beets; reserve tops. Arrange beets in a single layer in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish; add 1 cup water. Cover; bake until beets are tender when pierced with a knife, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Peel beets while warm. Cut beets in half and slice thinly. Transfer to a large bowl. Mix in capers and 1/4 cup dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut stems off beet greens; discard stems. Wash greens. Transfer greens, with some water still clinging to leaves, to a large pot. Stir over high heat until just wilted but still bright green, about 4 minutes. Drain greens; squeeze out excess moisture. Cool; chop coarsely.

Transfer greens to a medium bowl. Toss with enough dressing to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Arrange beets in the center of the platter. Surround with greens; sprinkle with feta. Drizzle with any remaining dressing.
