Try a variety of beets in this dish. The simple Dijon vinaigrette really makes the earthy beet flavor sing.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Discard greens from beets and cut off the stems and root ends. Scrub the beets well and cut in half lengthwise. Toss the beets with oil on a baking sheet with sides. Arrange cut-side down and roast until tender when pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then peel off and discard the skins.

  • Cut the beets into matchsticks. Place in a serving bowl and toss with scallions, mustard and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
