Shaved Beets and Radishes Pack This Winter Greens Salad With Flavor

I love roasted beets, but they take a long time to prepare. A much faster way to enjoy their natural sweetness is to slice them paper thin on a Japanese mandoline. Tossed with a simple vinaigrette, they become an ideal addition to a salad of hearty winter greens like endive, frisée, and radicchio, their sweetness complemented by the bitter bite of the greens. Some shaved Parmesan, radishes, and toasted flax seeds finish this simple salad off. More

Raw Root Vegetable Salad From 'Joy of Kosher'

Root vegetables may be most often eaten in the coldest depths of winter, but I actually like them best in early spring. New carrots and radishes are a sweet counterpoint to wintered beets, breathing new life into the tired roots. Add a burst of anise-y fennel and a smattering of chopped nuts, as Jamie Geller does in her new cookbook Joy of Kosher, and you'll have a brilliantly elegant and healthy side dish. More

Sautéed Root Vegetables With Soy Sauce and Honey

Glazed carrots are a classic holiday side dish and an easy stove-top preparation, but I like to mix it up a bit with some Asian flavors. For this recipe, I combine a medley of sweet root vegetables: carrots, sweet potatoes, and red beets. Instead of a traditional butter and sugar glaze, they're finished in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil, with a touch of ginger and lemon juice for flavoring. More

The Hot Pink

Inspired by my favorite way to eat beets—with horseradish and a cider vinegar dressing—this savory beet shrub is a great match for a juniper-forward gin like Tanqueray. The finished product here has just a touch of heat from the horseradish. More

The Cure-All

With the same flavor base as thePenicillin—lemon, ginger, and Scotch—this foundation of this drink is already a delicious antidote to a long, cold day. Adding a shot of beet juice just ups the curative ante. More
