Y’all.  My world has been transformed.  A few weeks ago we had a dinner party at our house, and one of our friends brought falafels with roasted beets and plain yogurt.  She has a friend who is from Iraq and she said that Iraqis traditionally eat falafels with beets and yogurt.  So we ate, and it was delicious.  Super delicious.

But THEN.  The next day I was trying to figure out something to eat and I found some nice baby salad greens, some leftover falafels, some chèvre (also leftover from the gathering).  And an avocado.  And you guys, I decided to put the falafels on top of the greens, sort of crumbled up.  And I crumbled some of that chèvre right in and then diced up the whole avocado in as well.  And then I drizzled it with olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt. And it was honestly one of the best things I have ever eaten.

Until I made the same salad yesterday but with the addition of roasted beets, because after that dinner party I have been craving beets. (Yesterday’s salad also lacked the goat’s cheese but I just gave it a generous dollop of plain yogurt, and if I had had a lemon I would have given it a good squeeze over the whole production.) Anyway, it is delightful and filling and so, so simple. Greens, falafel, avocado and/or beets, chèvre or yogurt.  Generous pour of olive oil and generous sprinkle of salt. Best salad ever, the end.
