Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Urban Farm Eats Beet Salad

All of the savories at the Urban Farm Eats Outdoor Kitchen seem interesting to us… We start with the Beet Salad…

Pickled Beet Salad with Goat Cheese Cream, Mizuna and Pistachios

Beet Salad #urbaneats #epcot #flowerandgardenfest 22MAR2014 - 1Our concerns with this dish echo what some other Disney World Food Bloggers have said…

All of the goat cheese cream was at the bottom and was pretty inaccessible. Puzzling because the white creaminess would have bee visually pleasing on TOP of the salad and it would have provided a better opportunity for incorporating it in the dish.

Don’t be deceived by the beets though, they also provided quite a bit of crunch. I’ve been seeing recipes on the internet for beet salad that don’t use roasted or cooked beets, just cut up raw beets with some vinegar or other sour element dressing them before they’re added to the salad… maybe that’s what’s going on here.

Overall, we liked this salad, the components are tasty on their own and really good all together. Again, it was a bit difficult to get everything all together.
