Instructions
 

Maple dijon vinaigrette

  • For this recipe you don't have to worry slowly pouring and whisking to emulsify the dressing. Put all of the ingredietns into a mason jar, put the lid on and shake well.

Roast the beets

  • Turn oven on at 400°
  • Wash and peel beets in medium sized bowl.
  • Add pressed garlic, oil, salt and pepper to season.
  • Individualy wrap each beet in tin foil.
  • Roast for 35 minutes or until you can easily place a fork through.

Maple nuts

  • Turn oven to 350°.
  • In a small bowl mix and coat the nuts evenly with the maple syrup, oil and vanilla.
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, spread the nuts out evenly.
  • Roast for 20 minutes.
  • Let cool, the nuts will harden and crip as they cool!

Assemble salad

  • I recommend mixing the kale, tomatoes with the vinaigrette. Then top with beets and maple nuts.

Notes

If you like a bit of heat, add a dash of cayenne pepper.
