27 Jan Roasted Beet Salad With Green Apples & Blue Cheese Crumble
|Serves 4 to 6
4 cups frisée lettuce
The Balsamic Salad Dressing:
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
|Preheat oven to 400°F
Spread aluminum foil on a baking sheet and place the beets on the foil. Now, generously drizzle olive oil on and around the beets before sealing the foil around the beets. The baking time is between 45 to 60 minutes or until the beets are tender. Remove the beets from the oven and allow them to cool. Once cool, peel and cut the beets into wedges and place them in a small bowl. Drizzle the beets with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste (gently toss the beets in the bowl).
The salad dressing is very quick and easy to prepare. Simply whisk all the ingredients together.
On small plates, place equal amounts of frisée lettuce and then top with beets before sprinkling with some cheese, walnut, and apple. Drizzle lightly with salad dressing and serve with a ramekin of extra dressing on the side.
• If blue cheese isn’t your thing, try substituting with feta cheese crumbles.
