Recipe for beet and feta salad

Serves 6

Of the many ways to cook beets, roasting shows them off to their best advantage. You can do this in the oven or on the grill, as long as the rounds are wrapped tightly in foil so a little steam in the packets can help soften the earthy flesh (some cooks call these “hobo packs”). Begin with a bunch of beets — familiar reds, red-striped chiogga, or golden beets — or buy them as singletons so you have a medley of colors.
