GLAZED BEET + CARROT SALAD // Serves 4

Inspired by Grace Parisi at Food + Wine

I changed the original recipe around because I had already roasted a bushel of beets (both red and yellow, hence the bleeding coloration of the beets in the photo). My recipe below reflects using beets that are already roasted, but you can click back to the original if you want to start with raw, baby beets. I also used full sized carrots and cut them down to a similar size of a young carrot.

  • 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large yellow beets, roasted and peeled, cut into 1/2” wedges
  • 3 carrots, halved, large halves quartered if needed
  • sea salt + pepper
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini
  • 1 Tbsp. orange or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 12 cups mixed baby lettuces
  • 1/3 cup cooked garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds, white or black or mixed
