  • 1/4 c Quality Olive Oil
  • 1/2 c Grated Ricotta Salata

PROCEDURE: For the beets: cut off the leafy tops and rinse the beets. While they are still wet, season with salt. Place in a roasting pan and add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil and cook in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 90 minutes. Allow the beets to cool to room temperature and use a towel to peel the skin off the beet. Slice the beets and place in a mixing bowl. Add in the vinegar, oil and season to taste. Arrange on a plate and drizzle some of the liquid in the bowl over the beets. Top with the ricotta salata and toasted hazelnuts.
