How to make it
- The "cook time" on this recipe is for roasting the beets, which you can do a day ahead (and chill them, covered, until you're ready to used them). Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Wrap beets in foil and roast in the middle of oven until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Unwrap beets and cool.
- Cook almonds in oil in a small skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until pale golden. Cool almonds in oil. Transfer almonds with a slotted spoon to a small bowl and season with salt.
- Stir together shallot, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, and oil from almonds in a large bowl.
- Slip the skins from the beets and halve large beets. Cut beets into 1/4-inch-thick slices and add to dressing, tossing to coat.
- Quarter pear and cut into julienne strips.
- Arrange beets on a platter and drizzle with any dressing remaining in the bowl. Top with salad greens then pear. Sprinkle with almonds.

Lovely! Especially pretty on a bed of mixed greens.
I just picked some baby beets yesterday from my garden and they're going to be in a salad very soon. :)
