Shaved Golden Beet Salad

The smaller the golden beet, the more tender, which is best if eaten raw. A mandoline or Japanese vegetable slicer is essential for slicing the beets as thin as possible. Of course, red, pink, white, and the two-toned Chioggia are perfectly acceptable here as well.

  • servings: 4


  • 4 golden beets, very thinly sliced
  • 12 whole basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Martha added 2 teaspoons champagne vinegar to the salad.


  1. Step 1

    Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and toss to coat.
