Beet and Chevre Salad

The simplest preparations are often the best. These two are a match made in heaven. The only intruder that might be welcome is toasted pecans.


Roast or boil the beets until tender. Peel and slice. Toss with balsamic vinaigrette and chill for an hour or overnight (or until dinner is ready). Serve over lettuce or greens or just on the plate with cherve crumbles and a sprinkle of herbs over the top.

As both a vendor and a member, I've found Fair Shares to be a wonderful organization to be a part of. It has opened my eyes to a whole range of farmers/producers in the region that I may never have had the opportunity to come in contact with if it weren't for my involvement with Fair Shares. And you folks all rock!
