Ingredients

  • 3 medium beets
  • 10 oz mixed baby greens
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • ½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. 
  2. Scrub beets and trim off tops. Wrap beets individually in aluminum foil and place them on a sheet pan. Roast 50–60 minutes, or until a sharp knife can easily be inserted into the largest beet. 
  3. Unwrap each beet and set aside until cool enough to handle. Using your hands or a paring knife, peel the beets, slice and set aside. 
  4. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the honey, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  5. Place the greens in a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the greens and toss to coat. Divide the greens onto plates and top with beets, walnuts and goat cheese.
