Roasted Beet Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette

Tossed with our housemade vinaigrette, this showpiece salad boasts beautiful color.

Ingredients:
1 bunch red beets, cleaned and trimmed
4 cups water
½ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup sugar
1 fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly shaved crosswise, fronds reserved
4 cups loosely-packed salad greens, washed and patted dry with a paper towel
F&L blueberry vinaigrette
¼ cup queso fresco cheese, crumbled
½ cup fresh blueberries
¼ cup toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Place beets in a large roasting pan and pour over water, red wine vinegar, sugar and 1 tablespoon salt. Cover with parchment and foil. Roast until just tender, they should be easily pierced with a knife, about 30 minutes. Peel beets under cool water. Cut into bite-sized pieces.

2. Toss the roasted beets, fennel, fennel fronds, and greens with about ½ cup of the dressing. Plate dressed greens. Season with more salt and pepper if necessary, garnish with the blueberries, queso fresco cheese and hazelnuts and serve.
