Raw beets and turnips, you ask? Oh, yes! They're quite delicious and crunchy as long as you use small ones and slice them thin. An inexpensive mandoline makes this a quick and easy salad. Use the leftover vinaigrette to dress up simple grilled chicken, steak or shrimp. Source: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2018

Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare vinaigrette: Combine walnuts, sherry vinegar, Banyuls (or red-wine) vinegar, verjus (or wine), orange zest and juice, leek, Parmesan, honey, mustard, parsley, salt, rosemary, thyme and pepper in a blender. Puree until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add oil until combined.

  • To prepare salad: Toss greens, chard, escarole, kale and radicchio in a large bowl. Very thinly slice beets, turnips, radishes and carrots; add to the greens. Toss the salad with 1 cup vinaigrette (reserve the remaining vinaigrette for another use). Serve topped with more walnuts, if desired.


To make ahead: Refrigerate vinaigrette (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
