Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

Beets and goat cheese are so perfect together. The tartness from the goat cheese brings to life the beets. And the lightly sprinkle of greens brought it all together. It was such a good salad. Maybe next time I would sprinkle some walnuts or pine nuts on top. Another great find from Stacy Snacks. 

Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

From Stacy Snacks


One Large Beet
A block of 6 ounces of Goat Cheese
A handful of rocket or arugula

Here is a way to get any beet hater to like beets (Glenn!).
Roast them to sweetness (400F, covered in foil for 1 hour, then when cool enough to handle, peel and slice).Place quartered beets (yellow, red and/or chioggia) with arugula and orange zest on a platter.
Place a piece of goat cheese in the center of the plate, and drizzle some balsamic glaze over and serve.
