Shaved Vegetable Salad with Nuts
1/2 tsp grated orange zest
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1 Tbsp. White wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. White wine
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp honey (I like Mike’s Hot Honey)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
2 medium red beets, peeled
2 medium yellow beets, peeled
4 carrots (various colors), peeled
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped toasted nuts
Few fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 In a large bowl mix together orange zest, orange juice, vinegar, wine, oil, honey, salt and pepper.
2 Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the carrots into ribbons. Using a mandolin, thinly slice the other vegetables. Add to the bowl with the dressing and toss. Let stand for at least 10 minutes.
3 Arrange the vegetables on a platter and drizzle with any dressing remaining in the bowl. Top with goat cheese, toasted nuts, and mint.
