Beet and Roquefort Salad with Walnuts

6 to 8 portions

This hearty salad is especially welcome in winter. It goes perfectly with a ham, grilled sausages or the like, and the color combination is striking on a buffet table.

As a variation you may omit the Roquefort and sprinkle the salad generously with chopped fresh dill.

  • 8 to 10 medium-size beets
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1/2 cup shelled walnut halves
  • 1/4 pound imported Roquefort cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. Wash beets well, and trim stems and roots without piercing the skin. Drop the beets into a large kettle of boiling salted water and cook until tender, 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the beets. Drain, cool, and peel beets, and cut into julienne.

2. In a mixing bowl toss the beets gently with the vinegar and walnut oil. Taste and add more of either if you like; there should be just enough to coat the beets. Cover and chill until serving time.

3. To serve, toss the walnuts with the chilled beets and arrange in a shallow serving bowl. Allow to return to room temperature. Crumble the Roquefort evenly over the top and grind on black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
