Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) package precooked red beets or golden beets, cubed*
  • 24 (1/4-inch-thick) baguette slices
  • 1 (4-ounce) package goat cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • Garnish: micro greens, thinly shredded beet greens, or fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Combine 3 tablespoons oil and next 4 ingredients in a bowl. Drizzle over beets, and gently stir. Set aside.
  2. 2. Brush remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil on baguette slices. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. 3. Spread toasted baguette slices with goat cheese. Remove reserved beets from marinade with a slotted spoon, and arrange over goat cheese. Sprinkle with walnuts; garnish, if desired.
  4. *If you can't find precooked beets, cut greens and ends of roots from 8 ounces fresh beets. Scrub well, wrap each in aluminum foil, and bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until tender; cool. Unwrap, peel away skin, and cube.
