Beet Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/beet_salad.html

From EatingWell:  Fall 2003

It's time we rescued beets from our childhood nightmares—when they were little better than bland wedges scooped out of a can. Roasted beets are delightful, sweet but very earthy and aromatic—great for a side salad.

8 servings, 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 3/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Divide beets between 2 pieces of foil; bring edges together and crimp to make packets. Roast until the beets are just tender when pierced with the point of a knife, about 1 1/4 hours. Unwrap the beets and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl to make dressing.
  3. When the beets are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes and place in a large bowl. Add celery, shallot and the dressing; toss to coat well. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
