Ingredients

  • 2 medium golden beets, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 medium parsnip, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick 
  • 2 medium red beets, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling 

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: Mandolin slicer or slicing attachment for food processor

Combine the golden beets, parsnips and sweet potatoes in a heatproof mixing bowl, and combine the red beets and onions in another heatproof mixing bowl to prevent any bleeding from the red beets.

Combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard seeds, celery seed, peppercorns, garlic and 1 cup water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat to dissolve the sugar and salt. 

Pour some of the hot pickling liquid over the red beets and onions just until they are submerged, and then pour the remaining liquid over the golden beets, parsnips and potatoes. Let the vegetables sit in the pickling liquid until just tender, about 1 hour. 

Drain the vegetables and plate the red beets and onions. Top with the other vegetables just before serving, and garnish with the goat cheese, parsley and pistachios and drizzle with olive oil.
