- Roast beets: Wash beets and place in tin foil. Bake in 400 oven for 45 - 1 hour (depending on size). Test beets with a fork to see if cooked inside. Remove and let cool slightly. Peel and set aside. (can be done in advance).

I agree, you cannot go wrong with this combination! I love to roast fresh beets. This salad and dressing are very easy to make but the taste is fantastic. The goat cheese really makes this salad special. Love it. Thanx!
