Baby Spinach and Roasted Beet Salad

Baby Spinach and Roasted Beet Salad

Ready in 1 hour

Baby spinach is mild in flavor and has the best texture when served raw in salads. Be sure to wash the leaves carefully. Immerse them in a large bowl of cool water, then remove the leaves and wash again in a bowl of fresh water until the water is clear. Dry the greens thoroughly using a salad spinner.

"This is delicious, although I didn't add the raspberries. Definitely make this again. "

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat an oven to 350°F.

In a roasting pan, combine the beets, salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until tender, about 1 hour. When the beets are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins, then cut the beets into wedges.

In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until blended.

In another bowl, combine the beets, half of the vinaigrette, salt, pepper, green onions and half of the mint. Toss to coat and let stand for about 30 minutes.

In a large salad bowl, combine the spinach, the remaining vinaigrette, the beet mixture, the oranges and the remaining mint and toss to mix. Divide the salad among 4 individual bowls, garnish with the raspberries and serve immediately.

Yummy. Used canned beetroot which also worked on a summer day.

Very good - though our beets took a lot longer to roast. Used blueberries also - which was really good!
