  1. 1 1/2 pounds medium beets
  2. 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  3. 1/3 cup minced red onion
  4. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh horseradish or drained prepared horseradish
  6. 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  7. 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  8. 1 tablespoon finely chopped capers
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 teaspoons minced chives
  11. 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  12. 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Put the beets in a baking dish, cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour, or until tender. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel and coarsely grate them.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the caraway seeds over moderate heat for 1 minute. Transfer to a work surface to cool, then finely chop.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the red onion with the olive oil, horseradish, anchovies, vinegar, capers and caraway seeds. Fold in the beets and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Stir in the chives, parsley and lemon juice and serve.
