Beet Pickles
Serves: 10 | Serving Size: 2 Tablespoons


  • 4 small beets, rinsed but not peeled
  • 1/4 red onion, peeled
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Dash of salt


  1. Slice the beets and onion on a mandolin — they should be very thin. Place them in a pot and then add water, vinegar, bay leaves, and a dash of salt.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer. Cover the pan and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until the beets are crisp-tender.
  3. Remove from heat. Serve hot or chill overnight and serve cold the next day.

Chef’s Tips:

  1. If you don’t have a mandolin, simply slice the beets as thinly as you can. If you do this, know that you may need to simmer your beet mixture for a bit longer in order for the beets to reach the perfect crisp-tender phase.
  2. These pickles are the perfect sides or toppings for sandwiches. They’re also amazing when tossed into a salad.
  3. Beet juices can stain, so use caution when preparing these vegetables.
