More About This Recipe
Sometimes you slide a fork into your mouth and feel glad to be eating.
Sometimes you feel surprised. And sometimes you feel downright ready to write a sonnet, speak in poem, and start wearing diamonds and fur while doing the laundry. This Fried Goat Cheese & Roasted Beet Salad recipe might cause such response. Prepare thyself for earthshattering yumminess!
How do I love thee? Let me begin with le beets. To start this recipe, you can buy canned beets, or roast them yourself. If you have time, try roasting them. The flavor of fresh-roasted beets in second to none.
If you don't have time, refrain from panicking. The canned sort will work, too. Either way, you're gonna wanna slice your beets about 1/4" thick, then cut them into little hearts with a tiny cookie cutter (or a fondant cutter works too, here!)
To prep the fried goat cheese, I like to set up a little station. This part of the process goes quick, so I'll toss the beets over a plate of greens, whisk up the Citrus-Shallot dressing and have everything ready so the hot balls of fried goat cheese can simply be tossed on top and served at gooey-melty texture. Yes, that's the official phrase.
Fork into that goat cheese, dive into those beets. Find your words, then speak forth poetry. Oh, Fried-Goat-Cheese-and-Beet-Salad, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
