Beet & Chèvre Salad with Honeyed Shallot Balsamic Vinaigrette

Course: Salad
Servings: 4 servings
Calories: 321kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 large beets
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil , divided use
  • 3 medium shallots , peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper , to taste
  • 1-2 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 ounces soft chèvre , cubed
  • ¼ cup shelled sunflower seeds (salted or unsalted)
  • Fresh mint , for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Use a knife to remove the tops and the tips of the beets. Then peel the outside with a vegetable peeler. Cube them into bite-size pieces. Toss them in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Spread them on a baking pan and roast in the oven, uncovered, for about 45 minutes or until they are tender.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a pan on medium heat. When hot, add the diced shallots and minced garlic. Sauté until softened and browned.
  • Remove from the pan and let cool until not too hot to touch.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the cooked shallots and garlic, remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, lemon juice, and salt and pepper.
  • Divide the spinach, roasted beets, chèvre, and sunflower seeds between 4 bowls. Drizzle with dressing to taste and serve.

Notes

Transportation Suggestions: Package the spinach separately from the other salad components to keep it from wilting. The dressing transports very well in a mason jar. Pack with an ice pack to keep the cheese cool.
