  • Meanwhile, put potatoes into another pan, and cover with water by about 1 inch. Add salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, and let cool. Halve lengthwise.

  • Coarsely chop beet greens (you will need about 4 cups). Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add beet greens, and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Transfer greens to paper towels to drain.

  • Toss together beets, potatoes, beet greens, blue cheese, pepper, and remaining oil. Serve immediately.

Really tasty way to use both the beets and the greens. The blue cheese really "makes" the recipe. Loved it!
