Simple Golden Beet Salad with Oranges and Kale

Have you ever noticed that vegetables are never boring? I love that you can mix and match vegetables and fruits. Mixing Golden Beet Salad with Oranges and Kale is a mix of sweet and crunchy with a tangy taste from the feta cheese.


Even just looking at beets, most likely you are familiar with red beets, but there are many other types of beets. Golden beets, for example, taste like the red beets, but they don’t stain like the red beets, and will give a yellow/orange color to your plate.

This beet salad with oranges and kale gives a great example of mixing and matching ingredients. You will notice in the recipe I didn’t use a dressing.You can if you want, but I found that it was too much since oranges have the delicious sweet citrus flavors and kale I sautéed in a tablespoon of oil.


Besides the golden color, golden beets contain a good amount of fiber and are a natural source of sugar. They also decrease the risk of heart disease and orange colored foods contain an abundance of antioxidants.

Citrusy oranges purify the blood and protect the skin. Keeping teeth and bones healthy, this fruit also adds sweetness and a lot of vitamin C. To add to all that, the kale contains a large amount of iron and 10 times more vitamin C than spinach.

What do I need to make this recipe?

Golden beet is high in antioxidants and helps to lower blood pressure.

Kale is filled with vitamin A, supporting the immune system.

Orange protects against cell damage, and helps make collagen.

Feta cheese is rich in calcium and phosphorus, which supports muscle function.

Candied pecans add the crunch and light sweet touch to this recipe, making them the perfect topping addition.

Along with those ingredients, you will need water and olive oil.
