Grilled Beets with Burrata & Poppy-Seed Vinaigrette

Let burrata come to room temperature before serving. The vinaigrette can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Beets can be grilled and peeled 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Serves 8

1 small shallot, finely chopped 

2 tbsp sherry vinegar

2 tsp poppy seeds

¼ cup vegetable oil

5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

680g mixed baby beets (any

colour), trimmed, divided

4-5 spring onions, roots trimmed

Whisk shallot, vinegar, poppy seeds, mustard and orange zest in a medium bowl.

Whisk in vegetable oil, then 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set vinaigrette aside.
