How to Make It

Step 1

Place the beets and 1 tablespoon of the salt in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until a paring knife can be inserted smoothly into a beet, about 25 minutes, depending on size.

Step 2

Drain and rinse under cold running water until cool enough to handle. Remove the skins. (They should slip off easily, another sign of doneness.) Place the beets in a bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Step 3

Slice them in half lengthwise. Arrange the halves on 6 serving plates. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar, then sprinkle with the remaining salt and the pepper. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on the side and some snipped dill.
