    Meanwhile in small bowl, beat oil and vinegar with wire whisk until blended.. Place baby greens on large serving plate; arrange cooked beets on baby greens. Drizzle dressing over beets and baby greens; top with onion and cheese.
  • If your beets are large, cut them in half, then cut into 1/4-inch slices. If using both red and gold beets, microwave them with the red on one side of pie plate and the gold on the other, so just a little of the red color leeches onto the gold beets. If the two colors are arranged randomly, the gold beets will all become red.
