DIRECTIONS

  • Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • For the roasted beets:
  • Place the beets in a sheet of foil and place another sheet on top and create a seal around the beet. Roast the beets on a baking sheet until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool the beets in their foil packet for a few minutes, and then rub off the skins using a paring knife if needed. The beets need to still be a little warm to be able to remove the skins easily.
  • While the beets are roasting, toast the almonds in a small skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove and cool.
  • For the vinaigrette:
  • Make the vinaigrette by stirring together the vinegar, mustard, salt and sugar, and then slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified.
  • Slice the cooled and peeled beets into 1/4-inch thick slices and add half the vinaigrette, tossing to coat completely. Toss the remaining vinaigrette with the salad greens.
  • Quarter and core the pear and slice it into julienne strips, about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Arrange the dressed greens, and beets on a platter and top with the pear, toasted nuts, and goat cheese.
