Golden Beet Salad Recipe
HOW TO COOK GOLDEN BEETS
Follow Chef Whitney’s directions for preparing beets the healthy way, using no aluminum foil.
Simply add them to a large oven safe pot, cover with water and bake.
Small beets will cook faster than large beets.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake small beets for 45 minutes, medium beets for 1 hour and large beets for 1 1/2 hours.
See our step by step guide on YouTube for more details.
INGREDIENTS FOR A GOLDEN BEET SALAD
For this beet salad recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
- 4 cooked and peeled yellow golden beets
- 1 fresh fennel bulb
- 1 small red onion
- flat leaf Italian parsley
- extra virgin olive oil
- champagne or white vinegar
- sea salt
- If you can’t find fennel, you can use celery. Slice the celery thin, at an angle as a substitute
- White balsamic vinegar or traditional balsamic vinegar works well for this dressing
- If you prefer a sweet salad dressing, add raw, local honey to the dressing. Two teaspoons will do.
- If your beets are still warm from baking and peeling, add the dressing to them immediately so they soak up more of the vinaigrette. This will make for a more flavorful salad.
