Roasted Beet, Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Roasted Beet, Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Megancake 2

"This salad is a bit of work, but it's so delicious and always impresses guests. Mache can be hard to find, so you may omit it and just use arugula, but it adds a great nutty flavor if you can find it."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Wrap each beet in two layers of aluminum foil, and place onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the beets are tender, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Allow the beets to cool slightly, then remove the skins. Let the beets cool to room temperature, or refrigerate until cold. Once cooled, thinly slice the beets.
  2. Place the mache and arugula into a large mixing bowl. Add the sliced beets and peaches; sprinkle with the shallots, pistachios, and goat cheese. In a separate bowl, whisk together the walnut oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper until emulsified, and pour over the salad mixture. Toss well, and serve.

Absolutely delicious! For anyone who has a Trader Joe's nearby, they offer fully cooked, peeled, fresh beets in the produce department which streamlined the process incredibly! *Loved* the comb...

Very nice! I substituted the goat cheese for light feta (lower in fat), and used olive oil instead. I also substituted the pistachios for roasted almonds. The combination of the flavours = YUM

I omitted the greens as I knew there were green salads being bought to the party that would be eaten along side the salad. I toasted pine nuts instead of using pistachios and used olive oil, bal...

Very delicious, I just used what I had on hand: 3 small beets, 1 large and perfectly ripe peach, walnuts and green onions. For the dressing I used 2 T. oil and 1.5 T. balsamic vinegar, plus salt...

WOW - impressive looking and tasty. I used roasted pine nuts instead. Next time, I will also add rasberries.

Although I think it has potential, and it was good, the goat cheese, fruit and beets are too heavy for the lettuce's used, and it becomes mashed/compressed just from the weight. Maybe if it was...

Beautiful and delicious! I used a spring mix/herb salad blend, safflower oil for the walnut oil and added just a squeeze of lemon to the dressing (only because I had half a lemon left from anot...
