Roasted candy cane, red and yellow beet salad with goat's cheese and meyer lemon vinaigrette

Author Notes: This is my version of my sister's simple beet, mint and goat's cheese salad. Mine has more bells and whistles and turns out quite differently. I love both. This could benefit from some chopped pistachios I reckon :)DUZE @BakingBackwards
