French Fridays with Dorie: Chunky Beets and Icy Red Onions

These French Fridays are getting easier and easier.

This is another simple, delicious, summery salad that you can add to your repertoire, given that you love beets and raw onions.

I’m not a fan of raw onions, but the rest of the salad was really good.

What’s better about this salad is the vinaigrette! Sherry vinegar, honey, dijon mustard – it is delicious! I tossed in some thyme, scattered the iced red onions on top, and served it as a side salad with our dinner.

  1. My boyfriends mom loves beats and is trying to get me to experiment with them. This does sound lovely I just dont know if Im up for the challenge yet!! (Im going to share this with her though – she’ll love it!)

  2. Hey Kate – just wanted to tell you that your rosemary garlic crackers are going to be on kateiscooking on July 5th 🙂 They’re WONDERFUL!! Hope you’re having a fun 4th. Kate

  3. Just getting around to liking beets, Kate and not a huge fan of red onion but this looks rather lovely. The vinaigrette sounds like a winner and I’m thinking the thyme makes the beet come alive. Love the beautiful colours!

  4. This was a really interesting FFwD. Most of the other bloggers weren’t very thrilled with this recipe because they either didn’t like the beets or didn’t like the onions. First I’m hearing of that yummy vinaigrette through. Sounds delish! Buzzed 🙂

  5. Your onions stayed white! Mine turned red immediately…..but I love this salad and the icy onions. I’m surprised at how many people don’t like raw onions.

  6. I just can’t bring myself to eat beets…and I’ve tried. More than once. I do love the dressing though! Those flavors sound fantastic. Have a great 4th of July Kate!

  7. Sometimes when I don’t feel like adding onions but kind of have to, I slice them paper thin. They are not as overwhelming as the larger slices. Your salad looks delicious!
