  • Summary

    The familiar beet-and-goat-cheese salad gets a fresh, vibrant update with Swiss chard and yellow and candy-striped beets tossed in a sweet, tangy honey-lavender dressing. Use a mandoline or other adjustable-blade slicer (or a sharp chef's knife) to thinly slice the baby beets.

    Ingredients

    • 6 medium beets (2 1/4 pounds total), preferably a mix of yellow and red
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced (1 cup)
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lavender leaves
    • 1 large egg yolk
    • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 cup safflower oil
    • 2 bunches baby chard or 1 bunch Swiss chard (about 1 pound), stems removed, leaves torn into 1-inch pieces
    • 1/2 cup pecans (2 ounces), toasted and salted
    • 8 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
    • 2 baby Chioggia beets, scrubbed and thinly sliced
