I just love tower salads, I think they even taste better because of their unique presentation. I already have two tower salad recipes with fresh spring ingredients on my blog (Tomato Salad with Mozzarella & Avocado, Pear Arugula Salad with Walnuts & Blue Cheese), and now I am happy to add one more to my collection. Simple but yet elegant and sophisticated, great for any occasions, from luncheon with a girlfriend to spring/summer appetizer for dinner with friends and family.
Beet Tower Salad with Goat Cheese
- 1 large beet, cooked and peeled
- 1/2 cup soft goat cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh greens
- 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp hazelnut oil or extra virgin olive oil
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- 3-4 hazelnuts, lightly toasted and chopped
Using a very sharp knife, slice the cooked beet horizontally into 4 or 5 slices depending on the size of your beet. Spread the goat cheese on each slice and place them on top of each other. Top the tower with your favorite greens. Drizzle the oil and balsamic vinegar around the plate and place a few chopped hazelnuts. Season with salt and pepper.
