Salad with ruccola, red beets, balkan cheese and pinenuts

When it's hot, and it's very hot today, I try to live on salads. This salad is very refreshing and boosting with vitamins. There are 4 flavours and textures in this salad - spicy ruccola, sweet beets, crunchy nuts and salty cheese, combined by a dressing. They work together very well.

Ingredients -
2-3 small young beets - they are in season now
1-2 handfuls of ruccola
1-2 tablespoons crumbled balkan cheese - feta is even better
roasted pinenuts
olive oil
chopped dill or parlsey
balsamic vinegar - optional

Boil or bake the beets. Peel them and cut into slices or whatever pieces you like. Put the ruccola on a flat plate, place the beets over it and sprinkle with the pinenunts and crumbled cheese. Prepare dressing from olive oil, chopped herbs, freshly ground pepper and a little salt, add balsamco if desired. Pour dressing over the salad. Enjoy.
