Tricolor Beet-and-Carrot Salad


Total Time

1 Hour 20 Mins

Yield

Serves 12 (serving size: about 1 cup)

This salad takes advantage of both multicolored beets and carrots to create one stunning salad platter. Get ahead by roasting the beets up to a week in advance. You can also shave the carrots a day ahead and refrigerate the ribbons in ice water. Keep the colors from bleeding together by arranging the salad on the platter instead of tossing. If you can’t find Chioggia (red-and-white striped) beets, use additional red and golden beets.

Ingredients

  • 4 (4-oz.) red beets, trimmed
  • 4 (4-oz.) golden beets, trimmed
  • 4 (4-oz.) Chioggia beets, trimmed
  • 3 medium-size orange carrots, peeled
  • 3 medium-size purple carrots, peeled
  • 3 medium-size yellow carrots, peeled
  • 1 cup packed baby arugula leaves
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallot
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
