From the Test Kitchen

It’s not a dream! These beets, though fantastical seeming, are real. One of our favorite things, it’s called a candy stripe (or Chioggia) beet. It’s a Northern Italian cultivar with gorgeous, concentric, red and white rings. It’s especially sweet, and it doesn’t stain as easily as the more common, maroon beet. In this recipe, you’ll use it to add satisfying earthiness to rich, seared salmon, farro and Brussels sprouts served with horseradish-spiced sour cream.
