How to Make Roasted Baby Beets and Blood Orange Salad


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Leave root and 1 inch stem on beets; scrub with a brush. Cut an 18 x 12 inch sheet of foil. Place beets in the center of the foil. Gather the edges of foil to form a pouch; tightly seal edges. Place the pouch on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender. Cool 20 minutes. Trim off the beet roots; rub off skins. Cut the beets into quarters.
  3. Grate 1 teaspoon orange rind. Peel and section oranges over a large bowl; squeeze the membranes to extract the juice. Set sections aside; reserve 3 tabelspoons of juice. Discard the membranes. Combine the rind, juice vinegar, and next 4 ingredients (through pepper) in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.
  4. Divide the greens evenly among 8 plates. Arrange beets and orange sections on top of the greens. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon of cheese and 1 1/2 teaspoons nuts. Drizzle each serving with about 2 teaspoons dressing.
