Here is another simple beet salad using vegetables and herbs from the garden.  If you are looking for a simple recipe using beets and want to take the flavors in latin direction then this recipe is perfect.   I got some great queso fresco at the mexican market in L.A. and had some left over from a latin themed party I did.    In this recipe I just wanted to use a few ingredients and let those ingredients really shine together.  That is really how this recipe evolved and came about.  Nothing to fancy here just having a few ingredients and let them speak for themselves.  Sometimes simple dishes are the best.

3 whole red beets boiled, peeled, diced

2 oz queso fresco

1 tbsp of chopped cilantro plus leaves to garnish

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 lime juiced

Salt and Pepper

Take diced beets and place in a mixing bowl.  Drizzle the beets with 2 tbsp of olive oil, lime juice, and chopped cilantro.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place on a plate and drizzle the beets with the remaining tbsp of olive oil.  With a zester or microplane grate fresh queso fresco over the beets.  Garnish with some cilantro leaves and enjoy.  Simple and easy beet recipe with a lot of flavor.
