- ½ c. frozen orange juice concentrate

Boil beets. This takes forever. But if you use a presser cooker it will take 20 – 30 mins. Peel and slice. While beets are cooking, warm up walnuts in frying pan until warm and toasting & stir in syrup. Stir until evenly coated & remove from heat. Do not overcook or it will go solid. Whisk together orange juice, vinegar, oil to make dressing.
Assemble: Put greens on a plate. Add beets, walnuts and top with daps of goat cheese and dressing.
