Salad of Mâche with Roasted Beets and Orange Vinaigrette

Salad Recipe provided by Epic Roots


1 (1 ounce) clove shallot, finely diced
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1/4 teaspoon chopped orange zest
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste
4 ounces mâche, washed
1/2 pound red or golden baby beets,
     roasted and peeled, cut in half
1/4 cup chopped, toasted walnuts

This is a twist on a favorite classic winter salad in France. The roasted beets complement the earthy qualities of the mâche and the orange adds a beautiful color. Combine the shallot, juice, vinegar and zest in a small bowl. Whisk in olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and set aside. Toss halved beets with 2-3 tablespoons of shallot vinaigrette. Set aside. Dress the mâche with the remaining vinaigrette. Divide the greens onto four plates, and garnish with beets and toasted walnuts.

Makes 4 servings
