Shaved Golden Beet Carpaccio

One of my favorite things about Springtime are all the vibrant colors. It inspires me to see such gorgeous colors jumping off my plate and into my body! This salad was inspired by one of my favorite dishes at one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Ynez, SY Kitchen. The silky texture of the shaved beets, crunch of the hazelnuts, creaminess of the goat cheese, and perfect slight saltiness of the ume plum vinegar, make this recipe an absolute delight. So grab a friend, pour some Pelligrino and enjoy!

*Notes:


- For a vegan option, I like Treeline’s Herbed-Garlic Nut Cheese

- Use lemon thyme if you can find it

- Feel free to use any oils or nuts you like

- For an entrée salad, throw some arugula on top and a bit more nuts and goat cheese
