Chioggia Beet Salad with Ricotta Salata and Hazelnuts

When sliced crosswise, Chioggia beets have a stunning red-and-white bull's-eye pattern. Compared with common red beets, chioggias don't bleed much color, so they're ideal for mixing in salads. Choose small beets if you're planning to eat them raw--they're more tender. Larger ones will be paler and a bit woody, so save them for roasting or boiling. Use a mandoline or vegetable peeler for paper-thin, even slices.
