Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Remove the beet tops (save to sauté for another meal!) and wash and dry the beets.

Rub each beet in olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Place in a roasting pan and cover with foil or a lid. Roast beets for 45 minutes or until done, when a knife easily enters the largest one. Let cool. Slip off beet skins by hand or with a paring knife and cut into segments.

Prepare the dressing by placing orange juice, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and fresh thyme in a small mixing bowl. Using a whisk, slowly incorporate the olive oil.

Place the greens on a serving plate or on four individual salad plates; top with roasted beets and peaches. Sprinkle with green onion, goat cheese, beans and capers. Drizzle dressing over the salad and serve.
