Rosie Makes A Roasted Beet Salad.

Every now and then,
I want a hearty salad.
Is that an oxymoron?

I had three small beets left over
from a bunch I'd bought to make a
bratwurst, beet, and cabbage concoction.
The hamster's a-running and the wheel is a-spinning.

I sliced the stems off the beets,
poured a little olive oil,
kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper over top,
wrapped them in foil,
and baked at 350° for about 75 minutes.
Let cool in packet of foil .

Thanks, Rocquie. It's still not spring here, so the "heft" of this salad is perfect in this weather. Loooong winter!
