Pasta salad with Beets

This is so delicious. I am not not a big fan of heavy pasta salads . This salad is light and filled with all kind of healthy veggies.


1 Baked beets

1 cup of cooked colorful pasta of your choice

1/2 cup of cut sugar snap peas

1 table spoon parsley

1/2 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes

3 table spoons or cut red onions

1 cup of fresh spinach

2 table spoons of dried cranberries

2 table spoons of toasted walnuts

4 table spoons of goat cheese ( you can use feta if you don’t like goat cheese )

Salad dressing:

4 table spoons of olive oil

3 table spoons of balsamic vinegar

2 table spoons of Agave syrup

1 table spoon of spicy mustard

1 garlic clove ( pressed)

Salt and pepper to taste


Bake your beats approximately at 350 for 1 hour.

Cook your pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.

Cut your veggies around the same size.

Prep your dressing , whisking together all the dressing ingredients.

Add your spinach, pasta and all your other veggies in a bowl mix with dressing. Top your salad with cheese, nuts and cranberries .

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
