Directions

  1. Trim beets, leaving 1 inch of stems attached. Cover beets with cold water by 2 inches in a 5- to 6-quart pot and boil, uncovered, until tender, 40 to 45 minutes (adding more water if necessary). Drain beets and let cool. Cut stems from beets with a small sharp knife, then peel and discard skin from beets. Cut beets into wedges.
  2. Mound mache alongside beets on a platter and drizzle with vinegar and oil. Sprinkle both with tarragon and kosher salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature.

First off, we didn't have Mache, so substituted mixed greens. I really didn't know what tarragon was, but was pleasantly suprized by the minty licorice taste. Beets were yummy and the sweetness of the beet was a good complement to the vinegar.
