  • Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place beets onto a sheet of parchment paper-lined foil; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap to enclose. Roast until tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Allow beets to cool.

  • Rub cooled beets with paper towels to remove skins. Reserve half a peeled beet, cutting the rest into 3/4-inch pieces; set aside.

  • Using a paring knife, remove peel, pith, and outer membranes from oranges. Working over a medium bowl to catch juices, carefully cut out each segment between membranes. Squeeze membrane to extract juice; discard. Set aside 1/4 cup juice, reserving the rest for another use.

  • In a blender jar, combine reserved half beet, reserved orange juice, red-wine vinegar, salt, and pepper; puree until smooth. With blender on, add canola oil, and process until combined. Stir in 2 tablespoons parsley.

  • Place lettuce, endive, watercress, chopped beets, oranges, and remaining parsley on a large platter. Just before serving, add vinaigrette; toss to combine. Garnish with ricotta salata, and serve.
