Preparation : 15 min Cooking : 30 min
230 calories/serving


1/2 red onions, thinly sliced 80 g
2 beetroots 260 g
1 eggs size large
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 tsp Dijon mustard 5 g
1/2 tbsp wine vinegar 8 mL
1 tsp balsamic vinegar 5 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 1/2 cups mixed greens 60 g
1/2 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped 1 g

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing easier.


  1. Thinly slice the onion, then soak it in a small bowl filled with water and a few drops of vinegar. Set aside while preparing the rest of the salad or leave it overnight in the refrigerator. This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
  2. Boil the egg(s) 10 min, cool them down immediately in cold water, then dice finely.
  3. Prepare the beets: boil or steam them about 25-30 min, then peel and julienne.
  4. In a bowl, mix the oil, vinegars, and mustard, then whisk well until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Add the beets and toss well, then adjust the seasoning. Drain the presoaked onion then spread it along with the mixed greens on a large serving plate. Place the julienned beets on top of the mixed greens and sprinkle with the diced hard-boiled egg(s). Garnish with the chopped tarragon. Serve.


Be careful with the amount of fresh tarragon, since it may be overpowering.

I really liked the beets and the dijon dressing. When I make this dish in the future, I might slice the onions thinner, and not use the whole amount. Great earthy taste!
