Roasted Beets and Burrata with Honey-Balsamic Vinaigrette

My mom recently brought us a huge bag of freshly picked beets and I couldn’t wait to eat them up! Beets have always been one of my favorite veggies – roasted or pickled, they are not only delicious but also very nutritious. In this dish, the sweetness of the beets pairs perfectly with the creamy burrata, crunchy walnuts and tangy vinaigrette. Serve this as an appetizer or as a side dish.

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Rinse the beets well to remove any excess dirt. Trim both ends of each beet, then slice. Place the beets on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, honey, both mustards, olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Allow the beets to cool slightly, then place on a serving platter. Tear burrata into pieces and place on top of the beets. Sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve!
