BEET AND FETA SALAD
« on: May 19, 2017, 12:08:56 PM »
6  cooked beets I like to roast them but boiled works just fine
2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3   tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2  tablespoon crumbled feta
1 1/2  cup  mesclun  or mixed baby salad greens



Quarter the  cooked beets

Whisk together lemon juice and salt in a small bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until combined well.

Season dressing with pepper and spoon 2 tablespoon over beets. Marinate in frig for about 15 minutes

 Just before serving;

Sprinkle the beets with the Feta cheese.
and toss the  greens with remaining dressing and mound alongside beets and serve

Thank you, Maggie!

Can hardly wait for my beets to be ready!  I'm gonna try separating some clumps into individual seedlings, and replant them into bare areas of the raised bed.  It should work pretty well for thinning/spacing, since the soil is very loose, and I can lift a whole clump without damaging the roots.

I'll let you know how this works out.  If it does, it'll sure beat starting them in cups inside!
