Beets with Lemon, Cilantro, and Mint

Recipe Credit: Deborah Madison, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Broadway Books, New York, NY, 1997.


Cut the beets into quarters or sixths. Whisk together the lemon zest and juice, onion, herbs, coriander, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper to taste, and the oil in a small bowl. Taste the dressing on a beet and correct the seasonings if needed. Toss the beets with enough dressing to coat lightly. Toss the greens with the remaining dressing and arrange them on salad plates. Add the beets and olives (if using) and serve.

Serves 4 to 6

1 bunch beets, cooked and peeled
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon plus 2 tablespoons juice
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
Salt and freshly milled pepper
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 handfuls of salad greens
1/4 cup black olives (optional)
