INGREDIENTS
  • 6 large beets
  • 2 Red pears
  • 2 fennel roots and fronds
  • 3 Tbsp orange muscat or champagne vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 5 oz goat cheese, softened

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 425°F.

Clean beets, wrap in foil. Roast until tender, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then remove foil and peel beets with a vegetable peeler (to keep your hands from staining, use plastic gloves!) Slice and half peeled beets. Place in a large bowl.

Slice pears and fennel roots. Toss with vinegar, olive oil and honey. Salt lightly.

Mince a few of the fennel fronds (or chop fresh dill). Mix into goat cheese.

Serve salad with dollops of goat cheese on top. Garnish with pistachios.
