Cooking Instructions

1

Combine beet, pear, jicama, chives and vinaigrette; refrigerate. Cut brie into six (1 ounce) wedges. Cut mozzarella into six 1-ounce sticks. Cut gouda into six 3/4-ounce wedges.


2

Separate fillo dough into 18 portions of about 1/4 cup each; cover with damp towel. Dredge each piece of cheese in flour, dip in eggs, then coat in 1 portion of fillo dough, pressing down to help fillo adhere.


3

Fry each cheese crisp in 375°F oil for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper. To serve, place 4 lettuce leaves near top of each dinner plate. Place 1/2 cup chilled salad on each set of lettuce leaves. Arrange 1 of each variety of cheese crisps below salad. Drizzle 1 tablespoon red wine vinaigrette around each cheese trio. Serve warm.


4

Note: Shredded fillo dough, known as kataifi, can be purchased in most Greek food stores. Fresh angel hair pasta may be substituted.


For red wine vinaigrette:


1

Place vinegar in small bowl; whisk oil into vinegar in a steady stream. Stir in shallots, salt and pepper.
