Chicory and Roasted Beet Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Chicory and Roasted Beet Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

You can substitute half a (15-ounce) can whole beets (cut into wedges) for the fresh; there's no need to roast the canned beets.

Cooking Light MARCH 2002

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup salad and 4 beet wedges)

Ingredients

  • 3 beets (about 3/4 pound), trimmed
  • 2 cups (3/4-inch) cubed French bread (about 3 ounces)
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Leave root and 1 inch stem on beets; scrub with a brush. Place beets on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool slightly. Trim off beet roots; rub off skins. Cut each beet into 8 wedges.

Place bread cubes on a jelly roll pan; lightly coat bread cubes with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 7 minutes or until golden. Combine croutons with chicory in a large bowl. Add dressing; toss to coat. Top with beets. Serve immediately.
