ROASTED GOLDEN BEET AND GREEN BEAN SALAD
This salad is gorgeous! Perfect for mid summer when local beets and green beans are in season.
5 medium golden beets
2-3 TB olive oil
1 lb green beans
1 large bunch arugula
2 TB red wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Juice of half a lemon
6 TB olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
3 oz crumbled goat cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Trim and peel the beets, cut into 1/2” dice
and toss with 2-3 TB olive oil until well coated. Spread on a rimmed baking
sheet and place in the oven for about 20 minutes until tender and beginning
to brown in spots. It is a good idea to use a spatula and toss the beets around
once or twice during roasting time for even cooking. Bring a large pot of heavily
salted water to a boil. Blanch beans for about 4 minutes until tender. Drain and
transfer them to a bowl of ice water until cool. Drain and cut into 1 inch pieces. In a small
bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon and olive oil. Combine the
beets, green beans, arugula and 1/2 the dressing on a serving platter or
bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste, top with the goat cheese, and
mix to combine. Add more dressing if needed.
