White Beet and Artichoke Heart Salad
Unless you've grown white beets in your garden, or can get them at a nearby farmer's market, you may have to substitute with golden beets. No worries, neither the presentation nor the flavor will change greatly, although the salad will then be somewhat yellow, rather than white. If you cannot obtain either, white potatoes may be used (don't use red beets, unless you don't mind this salad looking completely different!).
Roasting beets will darken the surfaces, which is fine with red beets, but not necessarily with white beets. To maintain the whiteness of white beets, they should be steamed.
This recipe serves six, or three hungry diners jonesing for a second serving immediately after the first bite!
