Roasted Beet, Peach, and Goat Cheese Salad


This beet, peach, and goat cheese salad is a bit of work, but it's so delicious and always impresses guests. Mâche can be hard to find, so you may omit it and just use arugula, but it adds a great nutty flavor if you can find it.

  • 2 beets, scrubbed

  • 1 bunch mâche (lamb's lettuce), rinsed and dried

  • 1 bunch arugula, rinsed and dried

  • 2 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced

  • 2 shallots, chopped

  • ¼ cup pistachio nuts, chopped

  • 1 (4 ounce) package goat cheese, crumbled

  • ¼ cup walnut oil

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Wrap each beet in two layers of aluminum foil and place onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until beets are tender, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Allow beets to cool slightly, then remove skins. Let beets cool to room temperature, or refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Once cooled, thinly slice beets.

  2. Place mâche and arugula into a large mixing bowl. Add sliced beets and peaches; sprinkle with shallots, pistachios, and goat cheese. In a separate bowl, whisk together walnut oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper until emulsified, and pour over salad mixture. Toss well, and serve.
