Preheat oven to 400? F. Wrap beets in foil, enclosing completely. Bake until beets are tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Cool slightly. Peel and slice beets. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Whisk olive oil, sherry wine vinegar, garlic and sugar in a medium bowl to blend. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper. Combine mixed greens, sliced green onions and beets in a large bowl. Pour dressing over and toss to coat. Divide salad among 6 plates. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola cheese and toasted walnuts and serve. Makes 6 servings. NOTES : Pour a chilled dry Gewurtztraminer to accompany the salad and offer crusty bread throughout dinner. Recipe by: Gourmet, October, 1995 Posted to recipelu-digest by "Crane C.
