Fancy Schmancy Beets

Cheesy Beet Dip
I had two golden beets left over and a bunch of cheeses in the fridge.  I wanted to have something savory to snack on hanging around in the fridge.  More importantly, I just spent a couple of hours cooking in the kitchen and did not want to stay much longer!  The mini food processor came out and the result was amazing.  Cool and creamy flavors from the cheese melded well with the beet and a touch of fresh oregano.  If you do not like oregano leave it out and it will still be scrumptious.  Mmmmm.....My hubby loved it too!

1 small roasted golden beet
1/3 c Fresh Mozzarella
1/3 c Ricotta Salata
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp fresh chopped oregano

1.  Peel beet with paper towel, cut off end, cut in half and throw in food processor.  Add remaining ingredients and puree until creamy, but still thick.  Pair with crackers or crudite or anything else that you like.  Enjoy :)
