Great salad! Two of my favorites--roasted beets and blood oranges--in an excellent combination. I did sub some Point Reyes Bleu for the goat cheese, but otherwise made as stated. Thanks, Amanda!

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Place beets in a roasting pan and coat with olive oil and coarse salt and pepper. Roast in oven until fork tender, about 1 hour. Remove and let cool. Then remove the skin on each beet and cut into quarters.
  3. Section the blood oranges, and and squeeze out remaining juice into a small bowl. Set orange slices aside. In bowl with juice, add sugar, mustard, olive oil and a pinch of salt and mix well for dressing.
  4. Toss watercress and beets in dressing. Plate and add orange slices and goat cheese crumbs. Serve immediately.
