Farmstand Ingredients Salad

This salad is a fave of mine, that I make every summer
when the beets appear at the farm stands. 
I eat it a lot for lunch with a side of fresh green beans
and (if I have the right ingredients) Fried Green Tomatoes.

Gigi Barbina Salad
(not sure why it's named this)

4 fresh beets, 
washed and ends cut off
wrap in foil and roast for 45 min @ 400*
Open foil and allow to cool, peel and slice.
 Baby Greens
1/3c. walnuts toasted
goat cheese

Layer beets, walnuts and crumbled goat cheese
over lettuce on plate and
drizzle with vinaigrette.

2 T. Mayonnaise
2 T. Sherry vinegar
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1 small shallot, coarsely chopped (or chives)
3 T. canola or olive oil
Mix together mayo, vinegar, mustard
and shallot. While whisking
rapidly add oil in a steady thin stream,
season with salt and pepper if desired.
