Salad with Beets and Yogurt Dressing

Salad with Beets and Yogurt Dressing
Martha Stewart
Greek yogurt is thicker, creamier, and higher in protein than regular yogurt because it has been strained to remove much of its whey.                                                                                    Prep Time
10 minutes Total Time
55 minutes, plus cooling                                                                                                                 Yield Serves 4
3/4 pound beets (2 large or 8 small), trimmed
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (full-fat or 2 percent)
2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
1 head, Boston lettuce
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
1/2 cup unsalted pistachios, toasted
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place beets in a 12-inch square piece of foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper; fold foil into a packet. Roast until beets are easily pierced with a paring knife, 30 to 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel beets and cut into wedges.

Whisk together yogurt, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons oil; season dressing with salt and pepper. Thin as desired with 1 to 2 tablespoons water. Divide lettuce among plates and top with beets, tarragon, pistachios, and dressing. Serve immediately.
