Roasted Beet Salad

This recipe is from Season 2 of 5 Ingredient Fix


  • 4 medium red beets, tops removed and scrubbed

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 navel oranges

  • 1/4 cup toasted, peeled hazelnuts, chopped

  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

  • 1 small wedge Pecorino Romano, for shaving


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • 2.

    Put a large piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and put the beets on it. Drizzle olive oil over them and wrap them tightly in the foil, making a packet. Roast until a knife inserted into the largest beet meets no resistance, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  • 3.

    Cool and remove the skins by rubbing the beets with a paper towel. (Gloves are a good idea to prevent staining your hands.)

  • 4.

    Cut the peel away from the oranges with a sharp knife, exposing the flesh. Hold the peeled orange in your hand and carefully slice the segments away from the membrane, dropping them into a bowl. Do not discard membrane.

  • 5.

    Thinly slice the beets and arrange on serving plates. Scatter the orange segments and hazelnuts over the sliced beets, drizzle the plates with olive oil and squeeze a little juice from the orange membrane over each plate.

  • 6.

    Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with shaved thin slices of cheese and serve.
