Roasted Beet Salad with Wilted Greens, Herbed Goat Cheese, and Candied Walnuts
(By Esi)

Makes 8 servings

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
3 bunches of beets, roasted, cooled, and diced
Greens from 3 bunches of beets, washed and dried
6 ounces baby spinach, roughly torn
5 ounces herbed goat cheese
1 cup candied walnuts
1/4 cup pomegranate arils (optional)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.

Add the beet greens and spinach to a large pot. Cover and heat over low heat until the greens have wilted, about 10 minutes. Season the greens lightly with salt and cool to room temperature.

Arrange the greens on a large plate, top with the roasted beets, candied walnuts, dollops of goat cheese, and pomegranate arils if using. Serve the salad at room temperature with the dressing on the side.
