Ingredients

  • 1 pound heirloom red and yellow baby beets
Vinaigrette Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
Sherry Vinegar Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Garnish:
  • Compressed watermelon, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 heirloom apple, sliced
  • 4 ounces Carmody cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup mixed lettuce
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula
  • Lavender flower petals

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

Wash the beets and wrap the red and yellow varieties separately in aluminum foil. Place on a baking tray and roast until tender, 30 to 45 minutes. 

For the vinaigrette dressing: Place the white wine vinegar, shallots and mustard in a blender and pulse. Drizzle in the olive oil and blend until it's a smooth emulsion. Season with salt and pepper. 

For the sherry vinegar dressing: Place the lemon juice, sherry vinegar and sugar in a blender and pulse. Drizzle in the olive and walnuts oils and blend until it's a smooth emulsion. Season with sea salt and pepper. 

Remove the beets from the oven and allow to cool. Peel the beets and cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Place the red and yellow beets in separate bowls. 

Place the compressed watermelon in a third bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette and/or sherry vinegar dressing over the beets and watermelon. 

To serve, arrange 3 to 4 cubes of red and yellow beets on each plate, together with 3 to 4 cubes of compressed watermelon. Place alternating slices of apple and Carmody cheese between the cubes of watermelon and beets. Garnish with walnuts, mixed lettuce, baby arugula and lavender flower petals.
