How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 375°. Arrange the beets in a roasting pan and add the cinnamon, bay leaves and water. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1 hour, until the beets are tender; transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet and let cool; discard the liquid and spices.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the shallot, vinegar and a large pinch of salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the orange zest, tarragon, parsley, chives and oil; season with salt.

Step 3    

Peel and trim the beets and slice them 1/4 inch thick. Arrange the beet slices in overlapping rows on a platter. Stir the herb dressing and spoon it over the beets. Scatter the pistachios and celery leaves on top and serve.

Make Ahead

The beets and dressing can be refrigerated separately overnight; return to room temperature before proceeding.

Review Body: I made this for Thanksgiving last year.  Not only was it gorgeous, but everyone loved it!  I hate tarragon, so I subbed in parsley/sage/rosemary/thyme for the herb blend, and added some soft goat cheese.  So good and good for you!  I will totally make this again for this year.
