Let's Make It
Step 1:Preheat oven to 400ºF. Prepare Lemon Vinaigrette (below); cover and set aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together lemon juice, shallot, Dijon-style mustard, lemon peel, and honey. In a steady stream, slowly whisk in olive oil.
Step 2:Scrub beets. Wrap each beet in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake 1-1/2 hours or until a knife can be easily inserted into beets.
Step 3:Cool 20 minutes or until able to handle. Remove and discard foil. Trim off stem and root ends of roasted beets. Peel and cut into 1-inch pieces.
Step 4:In a medium bowl combine beets, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette.
Step 5:In another medium bowl combine fennel, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette.
Step 6:Line 8 salad plates with lettuce. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Layer with beets, walnuts, fennel, goat cheese, and chives. Makes 8 servings.
Reynolds Kitchens tip
Wrapping aluminum foil around each beet for roasting creates a small steam chamber to cook each vegetable. In addition to locking in nutrients and flavor, the aluminum foil-wrapped beets cook without getting dry.
