BLEND USED: Bored-O Rouge California Grape Nectar
Tasting Attributes: The slight spice and bold flavor make the red Bordeaux grapes of our grape nectar a perfect compliment to the earthy quality of beets
If you are a beet lover, this dressing will be your natural, new go-to option. California Grape Nectar is your sweetener of choice for adding a subtle, natural sweetness without tons of sugar and carbs. Paired with the crunchy texture of the pepitas, the smoothness of the goat cheese, and the zesty brightness of the orange, this salad offers the full package. Bonus: the Bored-O Rouge makes this dressing a beautiful "Rosé" color!
If you're not a fan of beets, we would highly recommend giving the golden variety a chance. A little more mild in flavor, golden beets are the segway variety to this root vegetable. We like a little assortment of both in our salad to give the dish a sweet, rooty flavor from the golden and a spicy, earthy flavor from the traditional red.
Either way, those bloody beets are loaded with antioxidants and fiber to help you live a healthier life. And our nectars are the perfect healthy sugar alternative to enhance this salad option. The dark, jammy flavor of the Bored-O Rouge Grape Nectar adds just enough sweetness to turn you into a beet lover.
But please be careful, they will stain your hands! After roasting the beets (we roast them whole, skin and all), take care with the hand that is holding the beet by using a disposable glove. It makes the entire process much more enjoyable and manageable. The golden variety are much less burdensome and can we easily peeled and diced sans glove.
Whichever beet you decide to dance to, the Sweeter Side can dress you up!
