roasted beet and goat cheese salad
For the dressing:
1/4 cup minced shallot
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
mixed baby greens
4 cooked red beets
1 carrot, peeled and very thinly diced
1/2 of small red onion, very thinly sliced
3 tablespoons salted shelled pistachios (not dyed red)
4 oz soft goat cheese
1. Make the dressing: Whisk together the first 5 ingredients. I like to use my Cuisinart SmartStick chopper attachment to make this dressing.
2. Mix all of the salad ingredients together (except the cheese). Slowly incorporate the dressing- you will likely not need it all. Top with crumbed goat cheese.
