Sweetheart Salad

Martha Stewart Living, February 1998

Dress up a green salad for Valentine's Day with a garnish of tender beet hearts. Prepare the beets by roasting or steaming them: To roast, heat oven to 400 degrees, wrap beets tightly in foil, and cook until a fork slides in easily, about 1 hour; to steam, place whole beets in a steamer basket in a medium saucepan, and cook until fork tender, 25 to 60 minutes, depending on their size. Peel the beets once they're cooled; for easy peeling, use paper towels to rub skins off. Slice peeled beets thinly with a mandoline, and make heart shapes with a cookie cutter. Serve arranged around the edge of your favorite green salad.
