Mixed Greens with roasted almonds and beets and a touch of feta cheese

As promised...the first recipe from last nights dinner party!

Mixed Greens with Roasted Almonds and Beets, topped off with some 
feta cheese and a homemade vinagrette

The Ingredients:

your choice of mixed greens

oven roasted beets

skillet roasted almond slivers

some good feta cheese

The Easy Directions

Wrap the beets covered in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper in foil and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes or until tender. I had my oven set at 400°F. The almonds you simply brown in a pan on the stove--watch out---your kitchen will smell wonderful! Crumble the cheese.

To assemble

Arrange the mixed greens on a salad plate, add sliced beets, sprinkle with some almond slivers and feta cheese.

And to top it off:      The Vinaigrette!!

Whisk together: 2 Tablespoons Honey, 1 1/2 Tablespoons Djion Mustard, 3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper. In a slow stream, add 6 Tablespoons grapeseed oil.

Pour over salad and there you have it!

One more thing, since I did not have red wine vinegar on hand I used some of my homemade cranberry vinegar---YUMMY!

Happy Foodie Friday Everyone!
