BEET SALAD

Ingredients: 

 

-1 Large, or 2 small beets. Red, or gold. Sliced, or diced

-4 oz mixed greens, or 1 head of romaine lettuce heart, Chopped

-1 small or ½ large cucumber, peeled, chopped

-half a red onion, sliced

-4 oz Goat cheese (can get fancy here. Truffled, peppered, any kind you like.), Crumbled

-½ teaspoon seeded mustard

-3 oz Italian olive oil

-1 teaspoon Lemon pepper spice (or to taste)

-1 teaspoon Garlic powder ( or to taste)

-Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a medium pot with a lid, add 2-3 inches of water so the beets are not fully submerged. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Keep an eye on the water level, if too low add more. Beet should not be submerged in water so it steams instead.

  2. In a large salad bowl, combine chopped lettuce, sliced onions, and diced cucumbers. 

  3. Once beets are soft enough to easily penetrate deeply with a fork, they’re done. Remove from heat and run under cold water.  (careful theyre hot! The best way to peel the skin is with your hands while running the beets under cold water.)  

  4. Slice or cube the beets and place onto of salad.

  5. Crumble goats cheese and place on top of the beets and mustard on top of cheese.

  6. Add spices, lemon juice, olive oil, salt + pepper.
