Mozzarella, Beets, Walnuts, and Escarole with Ricotta Salad

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Galbani® Mozzarella Fresca™ Ball, cut in pieces
  • 5 oz Galbani® Ricotta
  • 1 lb. roasted red beets*, peeled and sliced into wedges
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, halved, and toasted in a 400° F oven for 5-10 minutes
  • 1 cup escarole hearts, chopped
  • Sherry wine vinaigrette

Directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, toss mozzarella, beets, walnuts and escarole with sherry wine vinaigrette.
  • Distribute salad onto 4 or 6 salad plates.
  • Top each salad with a generous tablespoon of ricotta.

*Roasted Red Beets: Preheat oven to 400° f. Wash beets, individually wrap them in foil, and roast for 60-90 minutes, depending on size. Once cool enough to handle, peel skin using a paring knife or your fingers.

Tip

If you prefer, golden beets can also be used. Fresh fruit, such as strawberries or figs, is also a nice addition.
