Directions

Separate beets into different pans. Place 1/2 cup water and 1 tbsp. vinegar in each pan. Coat beets with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast in a 350-degree oven until fork tender. Cool and wipe off skins with a towel. Thinly slice beets for salad.

Place one lettuce quarter on each plate. Separate layer of lettuce and line with golden beets, then red beets and then golden beets. Put lettuce back together and repeat process from bottom to top. Shave excess of side to get an even appearance of lettuce and beets. Place wedge on its side on plate. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. goat cheese per salad and add vinaigrette. Garnish with walnut halves, if you wish.
