The beets are still producing...and I couldn't be happier!  Ya'll know that baby beets are one of my favorite foods in the Universe.  And the fact that they are still hanging in there and producing beautiful fruit is a true gift in my book.  Just look at these beauties...

They taste sweet, earthy and absolutely delicious.  Last night I made the most delicious salad with beets and the last of the romaine lettuce from the garden.  This recipe is quick and easy to adapt to individual preference. If you don't like blue cheese, use feta or mozzarella.  You don't have to put it on a bed of lettuce.  You can add orange segments, etc, get the idea :)

Beet Salad with Blue Cheese
Wash, dry, and cut up romaine into bite size pieces.
Roast beets till tender
When beets are cool enough to handle, peel, thinly slice and sprinkle with kosher salt
Lay sliced beets around the perimeter of the plate
Mound cut up lettuce in the middle
Crumble blue cheese on top of the lettuce (you could also use feta cheese)
Drizzle with your favorite, high quality extra virgin olive oil and lots of freshly ground black pepper

Buono Appetito!
