Warm Beet Salad with Winter Greens

Topped with fresh Chevre and our crunchy hazelnuts, this flavorful salad is a true winter pick-me-up.

Ingredients:
Roasted golden beets, sliced and still warm from the oven (see recipe)
1 head escarole, washed, dried and coarsely chopped
1 head frisée, washed, dried and coarsely chopped
Farm & Larder hazelnut-thyme vinaigrette
½ cup crumbled fresh Chevre
½ cup Farm & Larder toasted hazelnut topping
Fresh-cracked pepper

Method:
1. In a small bowl, add frisée and escarole and drizzle with about ½ cup Farm & Larder hazelnut-thyme vinaigrette, and toss to combine. Allow to stand at room temperature for about 1-2 minutes, allowing greens to soak up some of the vinaigrette.

2. Arrange greens on serving platter, then top with warm beet slices. Generously sprinkle with fresh Chevre and hazelnut topping, then drizzle with the remaining hazelnut-thyme dressing. Season with fresh-cracked black pepper to taste.

Variation: These beets are also wonderful served over thinly-sliced fennel in lieu of the greens. Just let fennel soak up vinaigrette for about 10 minutes to soften slightly.
