Beet and Radish Salad

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2009


  • 8 baby or small Chioggia beets, trimmed
  • 8 baby or small red beets, trimmed
  • 8 French breakfast radishes, trimmed and halved if large
  • 8 icicle radishes, trimmed and halved if large
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a piece of foil with parchment. Place beets in the center, fold in half, and fold edges. Place on a baking sheet and roast until tender, about 1 hour. Unwrap beets, let cool slightly, then peel. Cut beets into quarters.

  2. Place vegetables in a medium bowl. Drizzle oil and lemon juice on top. Add thyme, season with salt and pepper, and toss gently. Divide salad among 12 three-ounce paper nut cups, and serve immediately.
