Ingredients

  • 1 large red beet
  • 1 large parsnip
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 heads Belgian endives, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 ounce crumbled reduced-fat blue cheese
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Trim the beet and parsnip, removing all beet greens and leaving ½-inch stem. Wrap the beet in foil and place in the oven directly on the rack. Roast until tender when pricked with a knife, about 40 minutes. Let cool completely.

Step 2

Before the beet is done roasting, peel the parsnip and chop into medium dice. Toss with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and freshly ground pepper. Place in a roasting pan. Add it to the oven and roast, stirring occasionally, until golden and tender, about 30 minutes.

Step 3

While the veggies are roasting, make the vinaigrette. In a separate bowl, whisk together garlic, balsamic vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Slowly whisk in the 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Pour half of the dressing into a container and store in refrigerator. Set aside remaining dressing.

Step 4

To assemble the salad, divide the ingredients in half and arrange beets, endive, parsnips, and blue cheese in bowls. Top with shallots and capers. Serve with dressing on the side.
