Za’atar Sunflower Seeds

For an extra crunch and a burst of flavor, we’ve added Za’atar Sunflower Seeds to this salad. To make these savory seeds, heat oil in a skillet, add sunflower kernels, and cook until fragrant. Then, reduce heat, add za’atar seasoning, and cook until toasted. These seeds add a delightful crunch and a hint of Middle Eastern flair to your salad.

Roasted Beet and Radish Salad

The heart of this salad lies in its roasted beets and radishes. To prepare the beets, wash, peel, and cut them into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place them in a baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and bake until tender. For the radishes, simply place them in a foil-lined baking pan, drizzle with olive oil, and roast until tender.

Assembling Your Salad

To assemble your salad, toss greens with half of the Sunflower Seed Turmeric Vinaigrette. Top with the roasted vegetables, shallot, chevre, and Za’atar Sunflower Seeds. Drizzle with the remaining dressing, and enjoy a symphony of flavors and textures in every bite.

Tips for Success

  • Keep red and yellow beets separate when roasting to prevent discoloration.
  • Line the baking pan with foil to make cleanup a breeze.
