I can’t say that I nabbed my man by making these gluten free Irish potato pancakes, but I can tell you that everyone who’s tried them has proposed marriage. Okay, fine, no one proposed marriage, but our Irish friend Mike liked them a bunch and complimented me profusely. Close enough?
This little appetizer is made from fresh goat cheese sandwiched in between layers of heart shaped beets. The dressing is a meyer lemon vinaigrette because I believe beets and citrus are a serious love match. Now, this particular love match is a love triangle because there is nothing beets and meyer lemon love more than goat cheese. There is something utterly magical about a mouthful of earthy sweet beets, creamy goat cheese, and the bright pop of lemon.
