Crunchies Beet and Goat Cheese Bites

DSC05530

One of my favorite salads is a beet and goat cheese salad, I think it is the perfect mix of creamy, tart cheese with the veggie.  So, when Crunchies sent me Freeze-Dried Beets, I knew immediately what to make.  Unlike traditional heat drying, the freeze-drying method Crunchies uses ensures that fresh fruits and veggies retain their nutritional value.  After harvesting fresh produce is quickly frozen and undergoes a low-pressure drying process.  Due to this result, Crunchies products retain most of their nutrients of fresh, whole fruits and veggies.  Another added bonus to Crunchies?!  The products do not contain added sugar, artificial flavors or coloring, and are Non-GMO and gluten-free.

Follow the recipe below for an easy to assemble, yet healthy appetizer to serve.  

1 TBSP Chopped Walnuts

2 TBSP Goat Cheese, room temperature

2 Medium Sized Beets

1 Clementine

1 Bag of Crunchies Freeze-Dried Beets

If you serve this appetizer, make sure you serve it right away.  If the Crunchies beets sit too long, they will become soggy.  Another way is to serve this appetizer is to pour the Crunchies into a bowl, plate the cheese, and allow your guests to create their own bite.
