Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 beet, 3 pieces broccoli, 3 tablespoons onion, 1/2 teaspoon capers, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon nuts, and 1 tablespoon sprouts)

Steam the broccoli while you are cooling and peeling the beets. Look for beets that are about 2 inches in diameter to match our steaming cook time.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare vinaigrette, combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Step 2

To prepare salad, combine onion, cider vinegar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a zip-top plastic bag. Let stand 30 minutes. Drain.

Step 3

Steam beets, covered, 35 minutes or until tender. Rinse under cold water. Drain; peel and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Combine 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and beets, tossing to coat.

Step 4

Peel broccoli stalks; cut into quarters lengthwise. Steam broccoli, covered, 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Combine remaining vinaigrette, broccoli, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bowl; toss to coat.

Step 5

Divide broccoli evenly among 4 plates. Top evenly with beets and onions. Sprinkle with walnuts, sprouts, capers, and cheese.
