Beet And Citrus Sunshine Salad

Lets just start off by saying, that when I made this for the 4th of July, it was inhaled. This salad is the single greatest thing that I have ever made with beets and it's perfect for hot summer days like today. Plus, it will make you look like you know what you're doing even when you stole the recipe from me and I never know what's going on.

Beet And Citrus Sunshine Salad

3 Large Cooked Beets
4 Large oranges
1 Large log of chevre (goat cheese)
1 C of fresh mint leaves
1 Batch of Dorien's Balsamic Dressing

Let's do this

Cut the skin off the oranges.

Slice oranges into thick slices (1/4 inch), cleaning out seeds as you go.

Slice beets a little bit thinner than the oranges.

Alternate the oranges and beets on a serving plate or individual salad plates. Now here's the trick for this, use your right hand for the beets and your left hand for the oranges exclusively. Otherwise, the oranges will get pink fingerprints on them. Nobody, no matter how much they love you, wants to look at your fingerprints in their food. If they say otherwise they are lying.

Drizzle with Dorien's Balsamic Dressing, then top with crumbled chevre and chopped mint leaves.

I'm so mad right now that I ate this already.
