Roasted Beet Salad with Fresh Goat Cheese
Adapted by StarChefs.com
February 2010

Yield: 4 Servings

INGREDIENTS

Roasted Beet Salad with Fresh Goat CheeseRoasted Beet Salad:
10 ounces trimmed yellow beets
Olive oil
Salt
4 ounces grated red beets
2 ounces sherry vinegar
½ ounce fresh mint leaves, chopped

Saba Vinaigrette:
1 ounce saba
2 ounces balsamic vinegar
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
½ ounce shallot, chopped
Zest of 1 orange
2 ½ ounces olive oil
2 ½ ounces canola oil

To Assemble and Serve:
8 ounces wild arugula
4 ounces shaved fennel
4 ounces pistachios, shelled and toasted
4 ounces goat cheese
Salt

METHOD

For the Roasted Beet Salad:
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Rinse the yellow beets (do not peel) and toss in a bit of olive oil and salt. Wrap the beets in foil and roast for 1 hour, until soft in the center (test with a toothpick). When cool enough to handle, peel the skins. Use a mandoline to cut the beets into ¼-inch thick slices; set aside.

Marinate the red beets with the sherry vinegar and mint for 1 hour, and then drain all the liquid.

For the Saba Vinaigrette:
Whisk together the saba, balsamic vinegar, vanilla seeds, shallots, and zest. Whisk in the oils and season with salt.

To Assemble and Serve:
Toss the arugula, fennel, pistachios, and goat cheese, yellow beet slices, and grated red beets with the desired amount of saba vinaigrette. Season with salt, if needed.
