Beet Terrine

This Beet Terrine is **so** darn good.  If you are a fan of beets, this will knock your socks off, if you are not a fan of beets, get over it and try this dish!  How awesome would this be to bring to a party, you would get all the oohs and ahhs.  It is as beautiful as it looks and is sweet and tangy, with the saltiness of the pistachios… perfect!

I had been playing with beet recipes and Olivari Olive Oil contacted me and asked if I would try their product and share a little about their company.  I was thrilled for the opportunity, not only because I am all about olive oil, but because I knew their olive oil would help showcase this recipe.

Here is a reason to love Olivari, they said they weren’t really looking for me to gush on and on about their product, though I am sure they won’t mind me saying, this is a great tasting Olive Oil, but they asked me to write about their campaign.  To Olivari, the little things are everything and to prove their commitment they launched the “Year of Little” Campaign.  Simple and sweet they want us all to take time time to celebrate the little things.  What a novel idea, step back and appreciate all that we have and the memories that got us here.  So please take a second to head over to their Facebook page and tell them I sent you, tell them how  you make time for the “little things” in life. Before I share my “little” Beet Terrine recipe I wanted to show you all the different ways you can enjoy Olivari Olive Oil with the tour done by Mr. Olivari himself.

 use with tomatoes, honey, carrots, snap peas, vinegar, green beans and bread.

I hope this post and Olivari’s “Year of Little” campaign will make you remember something “little” in your life, maybe a memory or an act that was little, but big in its impact.

    Such an interesting idea! I’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s beautiful and stunning!

  2. As a lover and grower of beets, and an equal lover of olive oil, goat cheese and pistachios, this dish sounds like a great summer salad dish! And you pictures are beautiful!

  3. Oh Miss Amy, what a gorgeous dish! I cannot wait to try it! And, I’m definately going to share this on FB wall 🙂

  4. Oh, Amy Stafford! I just love your pictures of Wee Mr. Oliveri! Ha!

    As soon as I saw this guy, I was all over it. I don’t think I’d make mine as…formidable…because I am just getting into the whole Beet Thing, but a shorter guy? Maybe in a puff shell? and layered in a tart pan? Oh my!

    Goat cheese and beets are a natural together, and I love the idea of using it as “mortar” to hold together the beets. Yum!!

    And I like the Little Things campaign. I’m’a go say hi over there!

    1. Jenni, I had a ball moving Mr. O around and taking photos. My husband walked in when I was trying to get him “just right” with the green beans. His look was priceless! 🙂 Putting beats in a puff shell- genius! xo Amy
