I love the color and flavors in this spring salad. The roasted beets are sweet, yet earthy and go great with the blue cheese and dijon dressing. This is a great salad for outdoor entertaining. Serve with your favorite fish or meat off the grill. I love this salad with grilled salmon. To keep it vegetarian, serve alongside your favorite veggie burger. 

What are your spring entertaining go-to’s?
