TIP OF THE DAY: Curly Beets Christmas Salad

Make your holiday salad more Christmasy with beet ribbons, stars, dice or julienne strips.

You can curl beets (as well as carrots, turnips and other root vegetables) by cutting a continuous ribbon from the raw vegetable; then steam lightly.

Add baby lettuces, toasted walnuts, and your choice of blue cheese, feta or goat cheese for a flavorful Christmas salad.

Other ways to make curled vegetable garnishes:

  • Curl vegetables with julienne peeler or a cheese slicer
  • Make a beet rose
  • A rose star is easy to do with a star-shaped cookie cutter
