Matchstick Chioggia Beet Salad
When Chioggia beets are matchstick-cut, they’re extra-extra fun! We enjoy this as a refreshing tapas-type extra side salad, leftovers are great atop a burger, or tucked in a wrap.
Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and set aside:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 medium Chioggia beets, washed, peeled and cut into matchsticks
2 green onions, thinly sliced (or 2 Tbsp. mild red onion slivers)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
2 tablespoons pistachios or pepitas/roasted squash seeds
Place beets in small bowl. Add onions, parsley or cilantro and nuts, and toss. Add vinaigrette and toss until well coated. Serve at room temperature.
