Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Bake 1 hr

Ingredients

Beets:
  • 3 medium-size beets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
Salad:
  • 10 cups assorted mixed spring salad greens (about 8 ounces), cleaned
  • 1 small head endive, trimmed and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces

Make It

Beets:

1. Heat oven to 425 F. Trim beets and scrub skins. Rub oil over beets and place in a roasting pan. Roast at 425 F for 1 hour, or until just tender when pierced.

Dressing:

2. Whisk together vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. While whisking, add oil in a thin stream.

3. Once beets have roasted, remove from oven and cool until you can comfortably handle them. Wrap your hands in plastic, if desired, then cut a thin amount off top of each beet, as well as any extra root. Slip skins from beets, or use a peeler for tougher skin. Cut each beet in half, then each half into 4 wedges. Place wedges in a medium-size bowl and toss with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and 2 tablespoons of the dressing.

Salad:

4. Toss greens, endive and remaining dressing in a large bowl. Top with beets, goat cheese and walnuts.
