Beets, oranges and spinach sprinkled with goat cheese make a scrumptious new blend for a mixed green salad. The combination may seem unlikely, but I guarantee it will become a favorite. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 3 medium fresh beets (about 1 pound)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon, divided
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 4 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 2 medium navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Scrub beets and trim tops to 1 in. Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake 50-60 minutes or until tender. Remove foil; cool completely. Peel beets and cut into wedges.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk oil, orange peel, orange juice, vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper until blended; stir in 1 tablespoon tarragon. In a large bowl, combine spinach, salad greens and remaining tarragon. Drizzle with vinaigrette and toss gently to coat.
  3. Transfer to a platter or divide among 12 salad plates. Top with orange sections and beets; sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings (1 cup each).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
