All ingredients of Beet and Blueberry Salad laid out on counter

What Ingredients are in Beet and Blueberry Salad?

  • Cooked Red Beets: earthy with a dark beautiful color and flavor, these are the star of the salad, giving a rich flavor base.
  • Radishes: crisp and slightly peppery, these add a fresh crunch.
  • Fresh Blueberries: bursting with sweetness, these balance the savory flavors.
  • Feta Cheese: creamy and tangy, it adds balance to the earthiness of the beets and the dressing.
  • Greek Yogurt: gives a perfect texture to the dressing.
  • Lemon Juice: brightens the dressing with a citrus kick.
  • Fresh Chives: adds a mild onion flavor.
  • Olive Oil: blends the dressing together.

Pro Tip: If you only have raw beets in your grocery store, it is very easy to boil (until fork tender), peel, and chop your own beets into small pieces for the salad. Choose smaller beets as the small to medium size of the beets means more flavor.

If you choose to buy pre-cooked beets, choose roasted beets or cooked beets that don’t add extra flavors. You want a plain beet flavor to blend with the sharp dressing in this salad.

How to Make Beet and Blueberry Salad:

  1. Combine beets, radishes, and blueberries in a bowl.
  2. Blend feta, yogurt, lemon juice, and chives in a processor.
  3. Add olive oil until desired consistency.
  4. Drizzle salad with dressing or serve on the side.

Pro Tip: Try making a red and golden beet salad by mixing beets! The golden beets look great next to the red beet, white radish, and blueberries.

Keep in mind, the yellow beets are sweeter, so keep a mix of red and yellow to balance the earthy sweetness of the beets in the salad.

Can I Freeze Blueberry and Beet Salad?

No, you cannot freeze beet and radish salad and have it thaw to the same consistency. When you freeze fruits and vegetables, the water inside them turns to ice. 

The sharp ice crystals damage the structure of the cells in the fruits and veggies. When they thaw, the structure cells are damaged which gives you soggy produce instead of fresh and crisp produce.

If you freeze this, plan to use it in a smoothie or baked dish.

How to Store Leftover Beet Blueberry Salad:

Store leftover beet salad with blueberries in the refrigerator in an airtight container. For best food safety practices, keep your beet salad on ice if serving at an event where it will sit out longer than 1 hour.
