Beet Salad w/ Agave Drizzle

How gorgeous was it yesterday in NYC?  A wooping 82 degrees all day long.  The sun shone through my windows and made me feel like Summer was here again.  Even if for a visit, I could feel the sun touch my face and it felt surreal. 

Yesterday was a great day to relax, I could feel the vitamin D shine through my windows while I went about my day.  It was lovely.

Around mid afternoon I got hungry, but I wanted something healthy.  I didn't have time to go to the market so I had to use what was already in my house.  I had canned artichokes and beets.  I went with beets.
I toppled them on my plate in a tower like stack and took shavings of a semi-soft cheese and placed each slice around the plate.  I then grabbed my light brown agave syrup and drizzled about 1 tablespoon at the top of the tower and around the plate.  I put it in the microwave for about 1 minute, a bit under and I was ready to eat my snack.

I have to admit that the agave syrup was a great element to this snack.  As I would usually use a lemon or orange wedge for dressing, this sweet element brought a nice touch to the flavor of the beets.

Beets w/ Agave Drizzle

1 can of beets (but only use half)
1-2 Tbsp. Agave Syrup (Light Brown)
1/2 Laughing Cow Mini Baybell Cheese

1.  Stack the beets at the center of the plate, with the slices of cheese.
2.  Microwave for under a minute (aprox 40-50seconds)
3.  Drizzle Agave syrup
4.  Serve immediately

Enjoy immediately

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
