Ingredients

  • 2 large golden beets
  • 2 large red beets
  • 4 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 4 ounces soft mild goat cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

Separately wrap the beets tightly in double layers of foil with the vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil and thyme leaves, and season well with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Unwrap the beets and allow to cool. 

To make the vinaigrette, whisk the lemon juice and shallots in a small bowl. Add the remaining olive oil in a steady stream. Season with salt and pepper. 

When the beets are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins and discard. Separately cut the golden and red beets into 1/2-inch dice and put in separate bowls. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper. 

Divide the beets onto 6 salad plates. Toss the arugula with the vinaigrette to coat and gently mound on top of the beets. Crumble the goat cheese on top. Serve immediately.
