Ingredients

  • 1/2

    pound medium red beets washed, stems and leaves removed

  • 1/2

    pound medium golden beets washed, stems and leaves removed

  • 1/2

    cup unsalted shelled sunflower seeds

  • 1

    fennel bulb cored, halved, and cut into 1/8"-thick slices

  • 6

    cups mache

  • 1

    tablespoon minced shallots

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

  • 1/3

    cup grapeseed or vegetable oil

  • 6

    ounces blue cheese crumbled

  • 8

    French bread croutons as accompaniment

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wrap the red beets in 1 large piece of aluminum foil, and the golden beets in another large piece of aluminum foil, closing the packets tightly. Roast in the oven until tender, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven, unwrap the beets and cool. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel and cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Place the beets in a small bowl. Spread the sunflower seeds on a small baking sheet and toast lightly in the oven, about 3 minutes, shaking once during cooking to turn. Remove from the oven and cool. Place the fennel and mache in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the shallots, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and whisk in the oil in a steady stream to emulsify. Toss the beets with a small amount of the dressing, and the fennel and mache with the remaining dressing. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the mache and fennel among 4 salad plates. Arrange the beets on top of the greens, and top with the crumbled cheese. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of seeds over each salad and serve with toasted French bread croutons. This recipe yields 4 servings.
