Loved this. Easy to make, not too time consuming. I roasted the beets rather than steaming. I think roasted beets have more depth of flavor.
This is a lovely salad of contrasting flavors, though I find that prefer it without the oregano. I cut the beets into bite-size pieces instead of thick wedges, and I served the salad with Pamela Anderson's Curried Carrot Soup with Cilantro.
Lovely recipe. I'm always cooking beets and the only thing I would do different is that I would roast the beets. The flavor in the roasting of them is tremendous and I feel brings out the taste and sugars in the beets much more than steaming. Also, I do not remove the skin. After roasting the skin is so thin it is barely noticeable if noticeable at all. There is a video for this recipe which is very nice. Loved the way the video was done. Music was perfect.
I made this last night and it got rave reviews from my boyfriend. I sprinkled the cheese on the individual plates to avoid it turning red. I'd also add a tiny bit more balsamic next time and cut the beets a little smaller. Delicious!
I would cut the beets into a smaller dice next time. I used red beets and the juice stained the cheese so everything in the bowl was a deep red. I also wore plastic gloves so my hands wouldn't stain.
Simple, beautiful, healthy, and tasty. I am not a big beet fan but made this for an office potluck. People ate it AND liked it! Suggestion: wear gloves while peeling to prevent purple fingers (unless you are making this for a Halloween party!).
