  • Summary

    Because beets are sweet and earthy, they need a good helping of acidity and salt to brighten them up. Immediately after cooking, dress beets in vinaigrette and salt to let them marinate. Blue cheese or crème fraîche offer sufficient tang for this salad if goat cheese is not available. If you are following our $68 Dinner Story, reserve the greens from the beets and the remaining Swiss chard stems and greens for the Sautéed Greens with Walnuts . Buy a bunch of radishes and save the rest for the Carrot and Radish Salad with Tuna and Capers .

    Ingredients

    • 3 medium red or golden beets (about 1 pound)
    • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/3 cup walnuts
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons white wine or Champagne vinegar, divided
    • 1/2 cup Swiss chard stems, sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces
    • 2 radishes, halved and thinly sliced into half moons
    • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
