About the Recipe: Just 6 beets can create this beautiful beet salad. The beet leaves are used for the greens and quartered beets are arranged over the salad. A simple soak in beet juice creates pink circled eggs. Toss and drizzle the sunshine orange vinaigrette over the greens and add a crunch of sweet pecans. This simple salad is a real show stopper!
Salad inspired by: The Forest Feast by Erin Gleeson; Stewart, Tabori & Chang: New York
Cook’s Note: Using different colors of beets create a very attractive salad. Make sure that you keep the colors separated until you arrange them on the salad so they don’t stain each other.
Coloring Eggs: Cool tender beets until able to handle; remove; discard peels. Place 1 red beet in blender with 2 cups water; Blend to form beet liquid; pour into small bowl; place boiled eggs (with shells removed) to cover with beet liquid; place in refrigerator for 1 hour to create pink eggs. After 1 hour, remove eggs from liquid; cut in half lengthwise.
