  • Summary

    To maximize the flavor of this salad, toss the beets with the dressing while they're still warm, so they'll absorb more of it. Sunflower seeds turn rancid fairly quickly, so it's important to purchase them from a place with high turnover, such as a natural foods store. Active time: 20 min Start to finish: 1 1/4 hr

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 lb medium golden beets (with greens)
    • 1/2 cup raw (not roasted) sunflower seeds (2 1/4 oz)
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 6 oz sunflower sprouts or baby mesclun (6 cups)
