  • 3 large (about 1 pound) beets
  • 1 (12-oounce jar) roasted red peppers , chopped
  • 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts or almonds, chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces spring greens
  • 5 ounces goat cheese

  1. Rub the beets with some olive oil and then wrap in aluminum foil. Roast the beets in the oven for 50 minutes and then peel and slice into thin rounds once cool enough to handle.

  3. Place the greens and then remaining vinaigrette into a separate bowl and toss to coat.
  4. Place the sliced beets onto a platter or individual plates, and top with the nut mixture, the greens and dollops of the goat cheese. Serve immediately.
