1 lb red beets, scrubbed, peeled, and thinly sliced
1 lb yellow beets, scrubbed, peeled, and thinly sliced
6 medium carrots, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp olive oil
seas salt and pepper
3 Tbsp orange juice
1 1/2 tsp sherry vinegar
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh tarragon leaves
3 small Belgian endives, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 oz fresh goat cheese, crumbled
1/3 c. chopped toasted pecans
Preheat oven to 450. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss beets and carrots with 1 1/2 Tbsp oil; season with salt a pepper. Roast until tender, 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through. Let cool 5 minutes.
Meanwhile,in a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, vinegar, tarragon, and 1 1/2 tsp oil; season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss endives with half the dressing, then transfer to a serving platter. Toss beets and carrots with remaining dressing and add to platter. Top with goat cheese and pecans.
[EDIT: this recipe works much better if you blanch the beets and carrots ahead of time, otherwise they tend to dry out when they are roasted. Extra amazing if you grill the veggies. This is frequent friend request recipe. If you make it for Dad, replace the goat cheese with anything non-goat.]
