Sweet beets and creamy goat cheese make a beautiful pairing with the nutty flavor of young greens. Mix up the flavor as you like with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. A splash of balsamic vinegar would add a nice twist too. Time-saving tip: Swap in canned beets! Just be sure to rinse them well if you can’t find a no added salt version.
