Sweet Beet & Chestnut Salad

Refreshing is the word that comes to mind, when I think of salads.  Creating the perfect mixture requires a delicate balance of flavor.  It's important that they exude a light and clean taste. Yet, they must also somehow retain that bit of hardiness necessary to last you until your next meal.

In today's delightful salad the sweet red and yellow beets balanced the flavors of the hearty tart goat chevre and nutty chestnuts to perfection. I loved the textures of the creamy chevre, crumbly nuts, and smooth beets.  Even the lettuce tickled a bit as it passed. Needless to say, I went back for seconds. I hope you can enjoy this satisfying dish soon as well. It's quite a treat.

Gently combine ingredients and drizzle with my new favorite dressing, Brianna's Real French Vinaigrette, or any of your choosing.  Enjoy!
