Roasted Beets, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad over mixed greens.

Roasted Beets, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad over mixed greens
by the seat of my pants!
serves 2-4

4-6 medium beets
1/4-1/2 c blue cheese crumbles
1/4-1/2 c toasted broken walnuts
4-6 c mixed greens
vinaigrette of choice

Place beets in a baking dish, roast at 350 degrees for 1-1 1/4 hours or until pierced easily with the tip of a knife ( I was amazed at how long this took.) Let cool, skin and slice. Set aside.

To assemble the salad:
toss greens with vinaigrette, layer in the bottom of a shallow serving dish. Toss beet slices with additional vinaigrette, layer over greens. Add blue cheese and top with walnuts.

Serve!

Recipe rating:  Oh Yes! (will make again)
