What's for Lunch? Beet Salad w/ Ricotta & Honey


Nothing much else to describe this salad, except it's easy to make, tastes great, and looks pretty.

I love serving on slate, it makes normal everyday food looks special, and it makes for a great gift.
So to make my usually boring lunch salad look special, I plated it on a slab of rock.

Roast your beets (red & yellow) at 400F for 1 hour, covered in foil.
Let cool and peel. Store in the fridge all week for salads like this.

Slice the beets and plate on arugula leaves.

Dot w/ fresh ricotta, lemon zest and sprinkle pistachio nuts on the top.

Make a dressing of 1 tbsp honey, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice.
Drizzle over the salad and dive in.


That's it.

So good.

That is so pretty! I've been using some small roofing slate tile for garden markers, brought them in this afternoon for a major cleaning and served something similar on them tonight. Nice look. I served them atop upcycled burlap from a local coffee roaster (Rostovs) who gets their beans in them.
