  1. Place washed, but not trimmed or peeled beets on top of 1 cup salt on a baking sheet, and roast in a 350 degrees F oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until fork-tender. Let cool. Wearing gloves or holding with a piece of plastic wrap, cut off stems, and peel. Cut each beet in half, cut in 1/2 inch slices, then medium dice by cutting in the opposite direction.
  2. Toast nuts in a 400 degrees F oven for 15 minutes, tossing once.
  3. Combine all of the vinaigrette ingredients, mixing well, adding nuts when cool.
  4. Trim the end of the endive, cut in half, separating the leaves for each half, but reforming each as 1/2 a head of endive. For each salad, place 1/2 cup beets, 1 cup arugula, an 1/2 endive on a plate. For each salad begin with 1/3 cup vinaigrette, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Toss each of the three components, separately in the vinaigrette, making sure to toss the beets last. Top with 1/8 cup of shaved parmesan.
  5. Repeat for remaining three salads. Serve immediately. Reserve left-over dressing.

Delicious. I received red beets in my organic box delivery this week. This salad is very impressive. I used 1 cup on oil only and next time I will use 3/4 cups. Everything else I followed e...
