Baby Beet and Avocado Salad with Feta and Balsamic Onions

This pretty little salad is testament to the fact that sometimes it’s best to keep things simple. The dressing is nothing more than a squeeze of fresh lemon and a drizzle of fruity extra virgin olive oil, highlighting the inherent deliciousness of the beets, avocado, feta and perky balsamic onions.

I rarely buy prepared vegetables, but I have to admit, the Peeled and Steamed Beets from Trader Joe’s below are quite good.

Place sliced onion and balsamic vinegar in a bowl. Stir well to combine and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes (up to 2 hours).


  • 1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar Pantry
  • 6 baby beets, boiled, peeled and chilled (or 1 package of "Trader Joes' steamed and peeled baby beets (see headnote) $2
  • 1 avocado, sliced $1.50
  • extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • juice of 1 lemon $0.50 for a whole lemon
  • salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste Pantry
  • 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled $3

Recipe Serves 2-4


  1. Slice each beet into 6-8 wedges. 
  2. Arrange beet and avocado slices on a large platter or divide evenly between 4 salad plates.
  3. Drain the onions and set aside.
  4. Drizzle beets and avocado lightly with olive oil and lemon juice. 
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  6. Scatter the balsamic onions over the beets and avocado and top with the crumbled feta and more black pepper. 
  7. Serve immediately.

I always have those TJ baby beets on hand. They keep forever in the fridge (not that they last that long), and are incredibly convenient. I heart beets.
