Beet Apple Salad
Serves 2 as a side
1 large organic beet
1 apple (your favorite type)
Fresh ginger root
2 oz. of goat cheese
1 Tbs of extra virgin olive oil
Fresh parsley, mint or thyme, chopped, for garnish (optional)
Scrub the beet clean and cut into quarters. Place it in a pot with an inch of water and cover and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the gas to a simmer and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until tender.
When the beet is ready, set it aside until it is cool enough to handle. Peel and cut into bite-size pieces.
Combine the beet and apple, drizzle with olive oil, grate ginger over the top, and add goat cheese crumbles. Garnish with your favorite herb, and serve warm or cool.
