Red Beet Salad with Pistachios and Feta:

There is nothing quite as good as freshly cooked red beets.  It's summer so it's the right time to try this wonderful side dish/salad. 

Gotta love feta and pistachios..I do!!  Try it..a different twist!

3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 medium beets, peeled( or I can sliced drained)
4 cups Romaine
2 tablespoons pistachios
2 tablespoons feta cheese

Whisk together the orange juice, vinegar and honey..Drizzle the olive oil into the mixture. and whisk until blended.  Set aside.   Toss the beets with half of the dressing mixture.
 Toss the Romaine with the remaining dressing and divide among 4 salad plates..Top with beets. Sprinkle with the pistachios and feta.

From my kitchen to yours,

M.j. :)
