You haven’t lived until you have tasted this cheese. Now combine it with the lovely beets and you have a salad fit for a king.
- 4 red beets, roasted and peeled
- 4 golden beets, roasted and peeled
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tsp. lime juice
- 1 tsp. honey
- 1 tsp. minced fresh basil
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 2 cups mixed baby greens
- 2 pouches of Burrata cheese
- olive oil for garnish
- basil flowers for garnish
Thinly slice the roasted beets using a fine paring knife or a mandolin.
On 4 pretty plates. arrange the sliced beets, alternating the colours in a circular manner. In a narrow bowl, whisk together vigorously the balsamic vinegar and lime juice until emulsified. Add the honey, basil, salt and pepper to taste.
Place the baby greens in a bowl, drizzle with some of the dressing and toss to coat.
Top each arrangement of the beets with a mound of greens. Slice each pouch of cheese in half and place one on each salad. Drizzle with additional dots of balsamic dressing and garnish with a basil flower (optional).
What did I say? That cheese is to die for. Yes, it is more expensive to buy but you should do this for a special occasion or, use as often as you wish.
