This was very tasty. I roasted fresh beets instead of canned and used a garlic and herb feta for the cheese. The dressing was good and not overpowering although I did not use all the dressing. I also used olive oil rather than canola. Very good summer dinner.
Delicious! Made this for dinner. Both of us thought it was a real winner! Only variations were that we roasted 8 oz of fresh beets instead of using canned beets, and we candied the pecans (moved the pecans to the side of the pan once they were toasted, melted some turbinado sugar in the other side, then mixed the two together). Pros: Easy to make, very flavorful Cons: none
