Golden Beet Salad with Apricot Vinaigrette
You might think of dried apricots as a colorful, tasty snack, but in this healthy beet salad recipe they're pureed into the dressing, adding both sweetness and a silky texture. The fruitiness and spices are well-balanced in this dish, but if you like, add another dimension with a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs, such as tarragon or mint.
To make ahead: Refrigerate vinaigrette for up to 3 days.
