beet and goat cheese salad

beets!! i saw them at the farmers market and couldnt resist. steamed or roasted, they are so delish and can be served in so many ways. its actually quite easy yet they look so elegant and fancy. serve as a first coure salad or as a side dish.

beet and goat cheese salad
3-4 servings
3 red beets
3 yellow beets
3 cups of micro greens
1 package (2-3 oz) of soft goat cheese
balsamic vinegar
extra virgin olive oil

peel and trim the beets. cut them into quarters and place them in a steamer basket over a large pot of boiling water. cover and steam for about 45 minutes or until beets are fork tender. i did them in two separate batches so the reds won't dye the yellows.
when the beets are fork tender, drain and cool. you can leave the beets as is or cut them into 1 inch cubes.

first plate the micro greens and then top with the steamed beets and crumbled goat cheese. drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar per serving just before serving.

or place in a martini glass for elegant presentation.

bon appétit~!
