It’s a great time of year for a refreshing salad! And this layered beet, goat cheese, and orange salad is one of those dishes that, with a few extra minutes, can be so presentable and pretty! It’s perfect for a cookout or pot luck gathering, especially if it’s outdoors—haha. Anyone else nervous to serve guests too many beets in their house? Maybe it’s because kids are usually part of the equation at our home, so (as a newer beet fan) my mind can only imagine all the areas where a beet could accidentally drop off a plate and get mashed into a carpet. Any seasoned beet lovers have some advice here?
Even if you’re not a beet lover (yet), there’s no need to turn your nose up to this dish. I think avocado would be a fabulous substitute in its place. But, either way, don’t give up on beets…it took me years before I was won over as I explained in a recent post. They do not taste like dirt (anymore)! LOL. Also, they’ve been a fun new ingredient to cook with. :)
