A Superbowl dinner...

In honor of my late great Aunt Helen -- a sophisticated and well-educated woman of her time, I didn't do the typical superbowl food...wings, chips, burgers etc. Tonights dinner was filet, ore-ida crispers...yes, and a mixed beet and goat cheese salad. The salad was my favorite. I used Gordon's Vinaigrette, along with goat cheese crumbles, and then yellow and red beets.

4 –6 medium-size Red and Yellow Beets, rinsed skin on
3 cups mixed salad greens
4 ounces goat cheese
1/2 cup Gordon's Vinaigrette

Preheat oven to 350°F. Loosely wrap each beet individually in aluminum foil. Roast until tender, about 1 hour. Remove foil and cool completely. Peel and julienne and then chill. (I used a papertowl and the skins came off easily.)
Sprinkle goat cheese and beets over greens. Combine all of the greens in a mixing bowl, drizzle with the vinaigrette, and lightly toss. Season to taste with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.

You probably hate cold meat and fruits too, so we will take your comments with a grain of salt.
