  • 2 1/2 lb medium golden beets (with greens)
  • 1/2 cup raw (not roasted) sunflower seeds (2 1/4 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 oz sunflower sprouts or baby mesclun (6 cups)
Servings: 6

  1. Put oven racks in lower third and middle of oven and preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Trim beet greens, leaving 1 inch of stems attached. Tightly wrap beets together in double layers of foil to make packages (2 or 3 per package) and roast in middle of oven until tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Unwrap beets and cool slightly.
  3. While beets roast, toast sunflower seeds in a pie plate or a small baking pan in lower third of oven, shaking occasionally, until seeds are golden, about 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk together shallot, vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar in a small bowl, then add oil in a stream, whisking.
  5. When beets are cool enough to handle, slip off and discard skins. Cut beets lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices and gently toss with 3 tablespoons vinaigrette in a bowl.
  6. Toss sunflower sprouts and half of sunflower seeds with remaining vinaigrette in another bowl. Arrange beets on 6 salad plates and top with dressed sprouts. Sprinkle salads with remaining sunflower seeds.
