Glazed Carrot & Beet Salad

Glazed Carrot & Beet Salad


The queue of unpublished recipes (and as yet unwritten blog posts) continues to grow and this past weekend increased the depth another notch.  We had guests in for the weekend and proceeded to roast a leg of lamb - Moroccan style along with roasted root vegetables.  I’ll work on publishing those shortly.

We added this salad to round out the meal and it went quickly.

The honey glazes the cooked beets and carrots providing a slight hint of sweet while the white wine vinegar opens up caramelization and provides a tart bite.

I used Feta cheese in this but a nice goat cheese would work just as well.
