I have already posted a beet salad recipe but this one is a little different, extremeley easy and delicious.
1# beets, red or golden
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. sunflower-seed oil
2 oz. goat cheese
coarse ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap beets in foil. Roast until tender, about 1 hour. Cool slightly; remove foil. Rub off or peel skins; cut into thin wedges. Toss with nuts and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Add oil; toss. Spoon over salad greens. Crumble goat cheese on top.
Note: In the Madison WI area Driftless Organics and Cherokee Bison make some great sunflower seed oil that they sell at the farmers market.
