Beet Carpaccio with Truffles
Put a vegetarian spin on this classic Italian dish. Thin slices of beet, glossy with olive oil, make this salad look like beef carpaccio, especially if you use red beets.
Tips: Look for jars or cans of truffle carpaccio--sliced truffles preserved in oil--at well-stocked grocery stores and specialty markets. Use it when you want the look and bite of freshly shaved truffles.
To shave fresh truffles, use a truffle slicer, a mandoline or a vegetable peeler.
