Daily Veg: Beet Salad at The Dutch

This salad ($14) could really win a Miss Beet Salad pageant. Fork up the watermelon-resembling hunks of candystripe beets and the darker, sweeter red beets. They're all lined in a row, mingling with sunflower seeds and sitting on a cool yogurt packed with fresh herbs like dill and chives. More

A common complaint about the food of another nation, when cooked in America, is that it's not gutsy enough.

Daily Veg: Beet Salad from Colonie

You almost expect to see a beet salad on every menu these days, but this one's unlike any other you've met. Forget the predictable goat cheese and walnuts. These roasted beet wedges are carefully layered with paper thin, shattery shreds of cocoa tuile. Chocolate and beets together? And you get to call it a salad? The sweet, earthy beets actually work really with the delicate, slightly bitter cocoa sheets. More
