DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a bowl, toss the beets with the olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Put the beets on a roasting pan and cover them with foil. Roast in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. (They are done when a sharp, thin-bladed knife can easily pierce through to their center.) Remove the pan from the oven, remove the beets from the pan and set them aside to cool.
  • While the beets are roasting, make the vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel and cut them into 1/2-inch dice. Put them in a bowl with 1 cup of the orange segments, the mint and the shallots. Add the vinaigrette, season with salt and pepper and toss gently.
  • Transfer the salad to a platter. Arrange the cheese and the remaining orange sections on top. Serve.
