Roasted Beet and Goat Blue Cheese Salad

Roasted Beet and Goat Blue Cheese Salad

By Sabrina Model, from thetomatotart.com

I am a salad freak. If I go a day without my greens, Iím just not a happy girl. This salad really satisfies my jones for greens and for another love — beets. I love beets — red ones, golden ones, big ones, baby ones, and those beautiful stripey white and pink ones called Chioggias.

This salad is so simple and can be plated in such a way that it looks super fancy, which is a big plus! I recently served this salad aside Pork Chops topped with a fig reduction and a lovely parsnip puree, but it could easily be served in a bigger portion as a meal.

  • SALAD INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Roasted Golden Beet
  • 4 Slices Goat Blue Cheese
  • Chives
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • Blood Orange Vinaigrette (see below)



  • BLOOD ORANGE VINAIGRETTE
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 6 tbsp blood orange olive oil (I used Stonehouse)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Whisk everything together until well emulsified



INSTRUCTIONS
Slice the beet and goat blue cheese into long slabs. Arrange beets and blue cheese side-by-side atop greens. Sprinkle with chives, and top with Vinaigrette.

I have seen Yellow or Golden Beetroots and enquired about them at our local farmers market. They told me that it tastes the same as the Red beetroot.

Beetroot leaves esp the newer ones tastes great in a tossed green salad. Here in Melb Oz we can buy freshly put together green leaves of various plants as well as bagged ones. I love it with its rocket, beetroot leaves, butter lettuce, chard, red and green Oak lettuce,mesun, cos and more. it is so delicious and glad they have included the delicious beetroot leaves whereas years ago they tossed them out or composted them.
