Ingredients
  • 5 to 6 medium beets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest plus 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (about 1/2 bunch)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Put the beets in a large pot of water, season heavily with salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the beets from the water, cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine the lemon zest and juice, parsley, olive oil, thyme and green onions in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Using the same kitchen towel, remove the skins of the beets. Cut the beets into 1/2-inch-thick half-moon pieces and add to the dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • When ready to serve, add the marinated beets to each individual plate. Top with some crumbled blue cheese and watercress.
