Golden and Red Beet Salad with Humboldt Fog Cheese

Ok, I have a confession. I didn't make this salad...but I really should. We had it last night at the Sideboard Cafe in Danville and it is the perfect marriage of mixed greens and spinach, red and golden beets, fennel, and the heavenly Humboldt Fog cheese. I could write a whole post on Humboldt Fog cheese as it is a soft ripened goat cheese made in California with a layer of edible vegetable ash that makes it look like a piece of cake. It is one of my favorite cheeses of all time!!

So, we might have to make this at home, although I love sitting on the patio at the Sideboard with Beaker and Justin sharing this salad and a cup of freshly made pomme frites.
