  2. Roast directly on rack in the middle of the oven for about 1 hour until tender. Test for doneness by piercing the largest beet with a knife. If it enters easily, it’s done.

  3. Unwrap beets and let sit until cool enough to handle. Use the hands or a paring knife to peel skin, then cut into ½-inch dice. Set aside.


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, slowly add the oil in a steady stream. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.


  1. Place the greens in a large bowl, drizzle with about ½ of the vinaigrette and toss to combine. Add as much of the remaining vinaigrette as desired and toss again.

  2. Divide greens onto plates, then sprinkle with beets, walnuts, and goat cheese. Serve immediately.
