Here's a quick written recipe from listening: Boil/steam beets for 20 min.; chill/clean beats of skins and slice, then set aside. In a large bowl, add 3Tblsp of minced shallots, 3 Tblsp of sherry vinegar, and 1/4 c of walnut oil (or extra virgin olive oil), and salt and pepper to taste; stir to mix. Add 2 thinly sliced Belgian endives, plus arugula; toss to coat. Plate some salad; garnish with some toasted walnuts, surround with some sliced beets; drizzle with some olive oil; sprinkle salt over beets and and add two crostini.
