Simple Summer Salads

Continuing on the trend of things to cook when it's 95 degrees outside, here are a couple simple salad ideas.

My all time favorite.  Juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and fragrant basil dressed simply in balsamic vinegar.

Roasted Beet with Goat Cheese
The beets were from our CSA share this week.  After scrubbing, I drizzled them with olive oil, wrapped in foil, and roasted at 375 for about 40 minutes.  They probably could have used a few minutes more, to be honest.  Served over red leaf lettuce (also a CSA pick), topped with crumbled goat cheese, and dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  
I can't eat beets without thinking of The Office.  Actually, that's pretty much the main reason to eat beets at all.
