I'm Russian-->I love beets!
Last weekend I made a really quick, but pretty and delicious salad. I hope you give this a try. Keep in mind that you can mix all the ingredients in a bowl instead of doing a "layered" salad: I just think this way the salad looks a lot prettier!
1 beet, cooked, peeled and sliced (I boiled mine, but you can roast it in the oven. I also used a mini cookie cutter to make perfect rounds, but you can just slice it)
1 orange, segmented
salt & pepper
1. Either combine in a bowl, or arrange on a plate beets and oranges.
2. Toss blue cheese and pecans with beets and oranges, or form into a bowl and put in the center of the plate.
3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
You can also add some greens to the salad: I think arugula or watercress would be a nice touch.
How do you like to eat your beets?
