Blackberry Ginger Beet Salad with Pecans
1-pound fresh beets (washed and trimmed)
⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup whole pecans
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons blackberry ginger balsamic vinegar (or any other fruity balsamic)
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
6 cups mixed salad greens
Coarse kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces fresh goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the beets on a large piece of aluminum foil, drizzle with a little bit of olive oil, and tightly wrap.
Place the wrapped beets on a small baking pan and roast for 1 hour or until the beets are fork-tender. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, heat a dry nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the pecans and cook, stirring frequently, until they are toasted and fragrant. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a medium bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar and the mustard. Slowly drizzle in ⅓ cup of olive oil, whisking constantly, until the mixture has thickened into a dressing.
In another medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Peel the beets, cut them into thick slices, then cut the slices in half and add them to the vinegar and olive oil mixture.
Toss the salad greens with your desired amount of dressing, then season with salt and pepper. Arrange the greens on 4 individual serving plates. Add the beets, goat cheese, and toasted pecans.
