The inspiration for this salad came from my box of CSA vegetables. Beets are earthy vegetables that offer gorgeous red color, and pair perfectly with Honey Aleppo Pepper fried goat cheese.

1. Place beets into a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer 45 minutes or until fork tender. Drain. Once cool enough to handle, gently rub off the skin and discard. Slice into 1 inch slices. Set aside.
