Pear, beet, and goat cheese salad

Standard

I bought a big bag of pears at Costco this weekend and have been trying to think of ways to eat them other than… Plain pears. On my way home today I thought about this recipe and it turned out really well!

Ingredients:
1 pear
1 large beet
Lots of spinach (washed and torn if you didn’t go the lazy route and buy baby spinach)
Goat cheese (you probably can’t have too much so just go with it)

Dressing:
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp water (depends how thick you want your dressing)

Slice the beets thin. I used a mandolin slicer.
Put in a pan and slightly cover with water. Bring to a boil, cover, and let simmer until beets are soft. Add water if needed.

Put spinach on plates and top with beets and pears. Sprinkle goat cheese on top.
In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour on the salad and serve!
