Fall Fig & Beet Salad with goat cheese and orange balsamic dressing

Serves 4

2–3 beets (a combination of yellow and red)
3 teaspoons vinegar (red wine vinegar for red beets, champagne or white wine for yellow beets)
2 cups mustard greens
2 cups arugula
16 supremed orange slices (from about 2 oranges)
2 tablespoons goat cheese
2 tablespoons Candied Pecans* (store-bought or see below)

Cut the tops and bottoms off the beets and place them each on a piece of foil. Drizzle with vinegar and wrap tightly around the beet. Place on a baking sheet and roast beets in a 400°F oven for about 1 hour, until tender. Cool, then peel and cube into ¾-inch cubes.

Build individual salads starting with the mustard greens and arugula and topping with beets, oranges, goat cheese, and pecans. Drizzle the dressing over the salad.


¼ cup canola oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together.

*CANDIED PECANS: Combine 1/3 cup sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon of salt in a bowl, and set aside. In another bowl, whisk together 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon water. Toss 1 pound of pecans into the egg white and sprinkle with the sugar mixture. Bake in a 250°F oven on a baking sheet for about 45 minutes, tossing occasionally.
