Beet and Turkish Goat Cheese with Guava Dressing

This latest creation is simply delightful and fabulous. We shared one large beet between us in this salad.

Here is the fantastic line up of ingredients:

  • 1 large “organic” beet, boiled and peeled
  • 2 – 3 fresh guava fruit
  • 1 fresh red chili pepper
  • 1 pinch of Himalayan Pink sea salt
  • 1 pinch of fresh black cracked pepper
  • 1/2 small pear
  • 2 tsps extra virgin olive oil
  • a few cilantro leaves
  • 4 thick smaller slices of goat cheese, we used a Turkish style
Slice the boiled beet in half and then equally cut slices and arrange with tip out on a pretty plate. The idea is to give it a Kaleidoscope or flowery look. Place one of the cheese squares into the center of the four beet slices. Drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and add a few slices of chili pepper.  Place shaved pear over the cheese and sprinkle with fresh cilantro leaves.
Blend guava fruit we used our little bullet, but you can also use a small Ninja, to pulp the fruit. Add a tiny amount of water, and a small amount of lime juice. Blend well, then pour pulp into a fine strainer, push through with a spoon so to make sure that you get all the lovely fruit. Drizzle over your salad, and finish it off with some fresh cracked pepper.
We’d love to hear your feedback, we absolutely loved this salad.
