Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Remove greens from beets, leaving about 1/2 inch of stem. Do not trim or cut root. Wash beets well. Tightly wrap beets in double layer of foil, and roast on cookie sheet 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until tender. When beets are cool enough to handle, peel them, discarding stems and root ends, then cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix dressing ingredients with wire whisk.
  • 3 In large bowl, toss half the dressing with mixed greens. Divide evenly among 4 salad plates. Arrange beets, nectarines, cheese and walnuts over each salad. Drizzle remaining dressing over each salad. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

To avoid a completely pink salad, arrange ingredients on individual salad plates and drizzle with dressing just before serving.

Keep the leafy greens that you remove from the beets. These greens are highly nutritious and can be cooked and eaten as a side dish.
