Recipe for Orange, Beet, and Goat Cheese Salad
For the dressing:
*1 minced garlic clove
*1 tablespoon of olive oil
*1/2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
*a pinch each of sea salt and raw sugar
For the salad:
*organic baby greens- enough to cover your plate
*1 Cara Cara or blood orange
preferably organic, peeled and sliced cross-wise
*1/2 medium sized beet
peeled and sliced very thin (I used pretty “Chioggia” beet here, carefully sliced on a mandoline)
*a sprinkling of minced cilantro
or substitute parsley
*crumbled goat cheese
or substitute feta
*generous pinch of crushed red pepper- optional
1. Mix dressing in a small bowl and set aside while you make the salad.
2. Make the salad by layering the greens, then the orange slices, then the beet slices, then the minced cilantro, then the goat cheese. Sprinkle on the red pepper flakes, if using.
Spoon the dressing evenly over the top of the salad. Dig in with reckless abandon.
