But I love their color and their dense, earthy flavor, greatly enhanced by slow roasting them whole for what almost feels like too long.
I make sure to buy them whole, with their greens attached. Because beet greens are delicious. I’ll show you an old family recipe for that soon (updated with the addition of some duck fat). But in the meantime, head out to the store, buy some whole beets and give this simple composed salad a try. Diana Henry’s recipe will get lots of good vitamins in you during the dark days of winter, good for staving off, the best you can, all those winter colds.
