Beet Salad
Recipe from EatingWell

It's time we rescued beets from our childhood nightmares--when they were little better than bland wedges scooped out of a can. Roasted beets are delightful, sweet but very earthy and aromatic--great for a side salad.

Ingredients
  • 2   pounds 
    beets, (5-6 medium)
  • 1/4  cup 
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2   tablespoons 
    sherry vinegar, or white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2  teaspoon

    celery, finely chopped
  • 1   
    large shallot, finely chopped
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Divide beets between 2 pieces of foil; bring edges together and crimp to make packets. Roast until the beets are just tender when pierced with the point of a knife, about 1 1/4 hours. Unwrap the beets and let cool.
2.
Meanwhile, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl to make dressing.
3.
When the beets are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes and place in a large bowl. Add celery, shallot and the dressing; toss to coat well. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
Tip:

MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
