  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and divide the beets between two large pieces of aluminum foil. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, and sprinkle it with the desired amount of salt and pepper. Seal the foil, making 2 loose packets, and bake for 45 minutes or until tender. Let cool in packets (about one hour) and set aside. Then bake walnuts at 400 degrees in a single layer for 10 minutes.
