Ingredients

For the beet vinaigrette:

  • 1 large beet (about 4-inch diameter, any color), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 fresh Thai chiles, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

For the herby coconut yogurt:

  • Handful mixed herbs, such as basil, mint, dill and cilantro
  • 1 cup plain coconut yogurt
  • 1 scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 juicy lime

For the carrots:

  • 2 pounds trimmed medium carrots, halved lengthwise if thicker than 1 inch
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

Make the beet vinaigrette:

  • Put beet in a small mixing bowl, season with salt, stir, and set aside for 10 minutes to soften and season the beet. Combine vinegar, garlic and chile in a small saucepan, bring all to a boil over high heat, then lower heat to gently simmer for 1 minute, just to cook off the garlic’s raw flavor. Pour hot mixture over the beets, stir and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour. Stir in olive oil.

Make the herby coconut yogurt:

  • Roughly chop the herbs. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, most of the herbs, scallion and salt. Use a microplane to grate lime zest into the bowl, then halve the lime and squeeze in the juice. Stir well.

Grill the carrots and make the dish:

  • Fire up a grill to cook with medium-high heat. On a plate, rub the carrots with avocado oil to just barely coat them (excess oil will lead to flare-ups and unpleasant flavor). Season carrots with salt, toss and grill, turning them occasionally and moving them to a cooler part of the grill if they get dark before they’re tender, until lightly charred and fully tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Let them cool for a couple of minutes.
  • pread yogurt on a platter and top with carrots. Spoon on the pickled beets first, then drizzle on about 2 Tbsp of vinaigrette. Sprinkle with remaining herbs and serve.
