    Directions

    01

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

    02

    Peel rutabagas and slice into 1/3 in (8 mm) rounds. Brush both sides of slices with olive oil. Place in single layer on lined baking sheets. Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating and switching sheets halfway through baking. Slices are done when fork-tender but not mushy.

    03

    Tear mustard leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub 1 Tbsp (15 mL) walnut oil and sea salt into leaves to bruise and tenderize. Place in large, shallow serving platter.

    04

    In small bowl, combine remaining 1 Tbsp (15 mL) walnut oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, and mustard. Whisk to blend. Add more salt to taste, if you wish.

    05

    When rutabaga is tender, remove from oven. Arrange and overlap slices on top of mustard greens. Scatter with toasted walnuts and goatsu2019 cheese down the centre. Give dressing a brisk whisk and drizzle over salad in a zigzag fashion. Serve warm.
