Air-dried bison is a specialty product you can replace with air-dried beef, a Swiss item known as bundenfleisch. In a pinch, prosciutto provides a nice cured flavour.

Ingredients

  • 4 beets
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 2 pears
  • 8 slices air-dried bison

Method

Scrub beets; trim stems but leave roots intact. Wrap in foil or place in covered casserole; bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool; peel and cut into matchstick-size strips (julienne). Set aside in bowl. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

In small glass measure, whisk together olive and walnut oils, shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Add about 3 tbsp (50 mL) to the beets; stir gently to coat.

Arrange greens on plates. Halve and core pears; cut each half into 8 wedges. Lay bison on cutting board. Spoon one-eighth of the beet mixture onto 1 side of bison; roll up like cone. Arrange on greens. To each plate, add 4 pear wedges; drizzle with remaining dressing.
