Beet and Asian Pear Salad with Baby Greens

Another great vegetable recipe to try...Beet and Asian Pear Salad with Baby Greens. Great recipe !

4 Trimmed beets (about 1 pound); scrubbed
1 Asian/Bartlett or Anjou pear
1 tb Apple jelly
2 ts Fresh lemon juice
1/2 ts Dijon mustard
1/4 lb Mixed baby greens; (about 4 cups loosely packed)
Garnish: chopped fresh chives

In a saucepan simmer beets in water to cover by 1 inch, covered, 40 minutes or until tender. Drain beets and cool. Beets may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.

Peel beets and cut into 3/4-inch wedges. Peel and core pear and cut into 1/2-inch wedges. In a small saucepan heat jelly, lemon juice, and mustard over low heat, stirring, until blended and jelly is melted. In a bowl combine beets and pear with warm dressing, tossing to coat.

Divide greens among 4 salad plates and spoon beet mixture over them. Sprinkle salads with chives. The vegetable beet and pear salad is ready to serve ....great taste !
