Fried Beet Salad

While I was transplanting lettuce this past Sunday I had lots of time to day dream about recipes and the great things to Golden Beets!

I wasn't sure if these guys would become a reality since the seeds were on back order for so long.

Yellow Beets are more mild than their red cousin. I love them fried and generously sprinkled over a salad or just for snacking.

Fried Yellow Beets

1 bunch beets, peeled with vegetable peeler and sliced VERY thinly (I use a mandoline)
Olive oil

After peeling and slicing the beets place them in a frying pan with the olive oil and fry baby fry! Cook until edges brown and they are crispy.  Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to absorb any extra oil.

Place beets over a salad of butterhead lettuce, chopped walnuts, a light vinaigrette - and your optional goat cheese.
