Roasted Beet Salad
2 pounds fresh beets
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar or fruit flavored vinegar
½ teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¹∕8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1½ tablespoons walnut oil
1 bunch watercress, washed, dried, tough stems removed
1 head of endive, cut into ¼-inch pieces on the diagonal
½ cup shelled white pistachios, lightly salted
Remove stems and leaves from beets, leaving about 2 inches of stem. Scrub beets well to remove dirt. Place beets on cooking rack in ceramic pot of Cuisinart® SlowCooker. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 2-1/2 hours and press High. Once beets are cooked through, remove to cool. Turn off slow cooker.
Once beets are cool enough to handle, rub each with a paper towel to remove the skins. (Beets may be sliced or diced and served warm at this point.) Cool/chill whole beets while preparing salad. Place vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to emulsify. Add the oils in a slow, steady stream while whisking, and continue whisking to emulsify; reserve. (The dressing may also be prepared in a food processor or blender.) Cut cooled beets into ½-inch cubes; reserve. Place a wide layer of watercress on a large serving platter. Next, make a narrower layer of endive slices. Top with a mound of beets. Sprinkle with pistachios. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
Note: Salad may also be composed on 8 individual plates.
