Ingredients

3 medium beets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
6 cups gourmet salad greens
4 teaspoons minced red onion
4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Leave root and 1 inch stem on beets; scrub with a brush. Place beets on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake at 425° for 45 minutes or until tender. Cool the beets slightly. Trim off beet roots; rub off skins. Slice each beet into 8 wedges.

Combine feta cheese and the next 6 ingredients (feta through pepper); stir well with a whisk.

Divide greens evenly among 4 plates, and top with beet wedges. Spoon dressing over salad. Sprinkle with onion and parsley.
