Yield: 4 Servings
|1 pounds||Beets (6)|
|1 small||Spanish onion (4 oz)|
|3 tablespoons||Vegetable oil|
|2 tablespoons||Cider vinegar|
|1 tablespoon||Fresh mint, chopped|
|1 teaspoon||Dijon mustard|
Remove stems and leaves from beets; wrap beets and onion separately in foil to make 2 packages. Bake in 350F 180C oven for about 1 hour or until vegetables are fork-tender.
Remove vegetables from foil; let stand for 15-20 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Loosen skins from vegetables; slice onion into strips and cube beets.
Vinaigrette: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mint, mustard, salt and pepper. Toss vegetables with vinaigrette: let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Toss lightly before serving.
