Roasted Beet Salad

A subtle citrus dressing beautifully coats tender beets in a lovely warm salad. Goat cheese adds a bit of tang while almonds provide some crunch. —Alissa Stehr, Gau-Odernheim, Germany

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 7 medium fresh beets (about 2-1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into wedges
  • 5 shallots, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • VINAIGRETTE:
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • GARNISH:
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • Place the beets, shallots and cumin seeds on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 24x12 in.). Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold foil around beet mixture and seal tightly. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 45-55 minutes or until tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.

  • Transfer beet mixture to a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds, goat cheese and parsley.

    Absolutely delicious! I used fresh basil instead of parsley for a delightful pepper kick!
