Beet Salad with Ginger & Garlic Scape Dressing

Beet Salad with Ginger & Garlic Scape Dressing

3 beets Just less that

¼ cup white wine vinegar or rice vinegar

Just less that ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 to 1 ½ inches fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated

2 garlic scapes, finely chopped

3 large handfuls of mixed baby greens (about 4 to 5 ounces), rinsed and dried

Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the beets well and pat dry. Trim off the beet greens and tops. Rub the beets with a little olive oil and wrap in foil. Place the foil package on a baking sheet and roast the beets in the preheated oven for 45 to 60 minutes, or until tender.

Remove the package of roasted beets from the oven and set aside for a few minutes. Carefully open the foil package (watch out for escaping steam) and allow the beets to rest just until they are cool enough to handle. While the beets are cooling, make the vinaigrette: In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar and ginger. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the garlic scapes. Set aside and allow the flavors to blend while the beets cool.

Rub the skins off the still-warm roasted beets with your fingers or a paper towel. Cut the beets into bite sized pieces, and place in a large bowl with the baby greens. Whisk together the dressing one more time so that it does not separate, and pour over the beets and lettuce.
