A beet salad that’s as beautiful to look at as it is to eat. Creamy goat cheese is whipped until light and fluffy and then stacked with a roasted golden beet. The Walnut Mint Pesto is the perfect topper for this easy to make and easy to impress dish.
Beet and Goat Cheese Salad is pretty much a summer staple. It’s on every restaurant menu and, as simple as it is, many people don’t make it at home. Which is surprising, given the number of friends I know that absolutely go bananas over it. Crazy…I know.
So, I gave it a little twist and turned it on it’s end. Impressed yet? Well, don’t be. Because this salad is three, super, easy components….roasted beets, whipped goat cheese and a simple pesto. All three items take about 3 minutes of prep work and can all be made in advance. Hosting your friends for lunch? This is the perfect salad for that occasion. Thank me later.
Or….if you don’t have friends or don’t like them very much to invite them for lunch….this could be your “Not Sad Desk Lunch” at work. You’ll have to assemble it at your desk, which takes seconds. Or store it in a can or something. Get creative…it’s your lunch! Or dinner. Your co-workers will think you went to culinary school when you were out with the ebola virus last winter. True stuff!
