Yield: 6 (3/4-cup) servings


4 large raw beets
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 ounces feta or goat cheese, crumbled


Preheat oven to 400°. Cut leaves off the top of beets. Scrub beets with vegetable brush. Place beets on a piece of aluminum foil; drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Roll beets around to be sure beets have a light coating of oil and salt. Wrap with foil; bake in 400° oven for 30 minutes. Allow beets to cool, then remove skin.

Cut beets into 1/2- to 1-inch chunks. Place in large bowl. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, parsley, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper; mix. Add crumbled cheese; stir gently. Chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
