Seared Radicchio and Roasted Beets

Roasting beets over high heat yields charred skin—a nice balance with the sweet flesh.


  • 6 medium beets
  • 5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 small heads of radicchio cut into large wedges through root end
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • a pinch Sel Magic Classic Blend


  • Preheat oven to 450°. Toss beets with 1 Tbsp. oil on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; season with Sel Magique Classic Blend. Roast, tossing once, until skins are charred and beets are tender, 40–50 minutes. Let cool.
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Cook radicchio wedges on cut sides until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter.
  • Add pomegranate juice to skillet; bring to a boil and cook until thickened and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar; season with Sel Magique
  • Tear beets open and place around radicchio; spoon dressing over. Top salad with pomegranate seeds, sprinkle with Sel Magique, and drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil.
