This is another favorite of mine! What makes this salad amazing is Trader Joe’s Pecan Blue Cheese Spread!! If you have never tried it, I suggest you run out today and get some, it’s take good. I think it’s interesting how one ingredient can change the whole flavor and taste of a dish. Try making your favorite dishes with a little twist and exchange one item out. I get tired of making the same go to items, even though I love them, it’s fun to spice things up a bit!
1 cooked beet, sliced
1 tbsp Trader Joe Pecan Bleu Cheese Spread
1/2 cup black beans, rinsed
1/2 cup mandarin oranges
2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
1. In a salad bowl mix, lettuce, beans, oranges, pecans and dressing to coat.
2. On a small plate place 2 slices of beets and spread with 1 tbsp each blue cheese spread. Then top with another 2 slices (if you have left over beets dice and add to salad mix.)
3. Top salad mix with 2 beet blue cheese stacks
