How to make it
- Heat the oven to 400°F.

- Bake beets for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let beets steam for 10 minutes.
- Open the pouch and let the beets cool slightly. (This can be done a day in advance.)
- Whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard, honey, and shallot in a small bowl.
- Slowly whisk in the oils and season with salt and pepper.
- Set the vinaigrette aside.
- After the beets have cooled enough to handle, remove and discard the skins and cut into bite-size pieces.
- Mix the beets with half of vinaigrette, then mix the salad greens with the rest of the vinaigrette.
- Transfer greens to plates and top with beets.
- Cut goat cheese log into 6 portions and form the goat cheese into disks.
- Using the breading procedure, dust goat cheese disks in flour.
- Next, dip in the beaten egg mixture, and then roll in pistachios.
- Follow this process with all six goat cheese disks.
- When you are ready to serve, heat 2 inches of canola oil in a small saucepan.
- Heat the oil to 350 degrees and deep fry the goat cheese discs until golden brown.
- Serve on top of the salad mixture.
- To garnish, add a few chopped pistachios and drizzle with more honey.
