  • Summary

    Italian parsley isn't usually valued as a salad green. But when it’s tempered by earthy, juicy raw beets and a citrus vinaigrette, the mineral-tinged flat leaves will be the talk of the table.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling
    • 2 1/4 pounds assorted beets with greens (such as Chioggia, white, golden, and red; 1 1/2 pounds if already trimmed)
    • 1/4 small red onion
    • 1 1/4 cups Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves (from 1 bunch), torn if desired
    • Equipment: an adjustable-blade slicer
    • Accompaniment: fresh ricotta or farmer cheese, or grated ricotta salata
