LorenaLorena

Three types of beets combine to colorful effect in this delicious salad recipe from chef Dan Kluger.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 pound baby red beets
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 pound baby golden beets
  • 1/3 pound baby candy cane beets
  • 2 cups organic Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ounces fresh chervil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

directions

  • 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • 2

    Place red beets in a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon coarse salt, 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Wrap red beets in parchment paper-lined aluminum foil and set aside; repeat process in a clean bowl, first with golden beets, then with candy cane beets.

  • 3

    Place wrapped beets on a baking sheet and transfer to oven; roast until beets are easily pierced with the tip of a small knife, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Remove skins by rubbing each type of beet with a paper towel.

  • 4

    Cut beets into halves or quarters and transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil, remaining 2 tablespoons coarse salt, and pepper; toss to combine.

  • 5

    Spoon yogurt into the bottom of a large shallow serving bowl; top with an even layer of beets. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and balsamic vinegar; garnish with chervil and season with sea salt and pepper. Serve.
