Roasted Beet Salad with Shredded Greens, Golden Raisins, and Pine Nuts

Ingredients
2
pounds fresh beets with tops
2
3
tablespoons olive oil
 
Salt and ground black pepper
1/2
cup golden raisins
2
tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
4
ounces Manchego cheese or ricotta salata, sliced
 
Balsamic vinegar (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Cut tops from beets; set tops aside. Place beets and rosemary on a piece of heavy foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Bring up two opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold in remaining edges to completely enclose. Roast beets about 55 minutes or until tender when pierced with a knife. Carefully open packet to release steam. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Peel skins from beets and cut into wedges. Discard rosemary.
  2. Meanwhile, thoroughly wash and dry beet greens. Thinly slice beet greens, discarding stalks.
  3. In a large bowl gently toss warm beets, shredded beet greens, and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil until greens are slightly wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. On a large platter or four salad plates arrange beet mixture. Sprinkle with raisins and nuts. Top with cheese. If desired, drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
