Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

 

Ingredients

 

Instructions

  1.  Chop up beets to desired size (bake, boil, or pre-cooked are great options), set aside
  2.  Prepare dressing:
    1. In a bowl, use a whisk to combine the lemon juice, mustard, honey, and seasonings. While whisking vigorously, drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Rinse greens and add beet greens if available.
  4.  Toss greens, beets, and dressing until fully coated. Then add in the goat cheese. The longer this can “sit” and marinate, the better (up to 30 mins) – will help to enhance all the flavors!
  5.  Eat and ENJOY!
