Baby Greens and Beet Salad with Lemon Chia Dressing

The tart-sweet flavors of this salad and dressing complement rich and earthy main dishes and chewy hearth breads. Substitute baby spinach or mesclun mix for the baby greens or use feta in place of the goat cheese. Refrigerate any unused dressing for later use.
