Rub beets in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place on a baking sheet in the oven for 1 hour or until just getting tender.
Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle.
Peel the beets then slice thin.
Line a serving platter with the lettuce.
Add beet slices.
Crumble cheese over the beets.
In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of olive oil and drizzle over the beets.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
