Quick-pickled red onions are the star of this salad, which features a colorful medley of baby greens, chickpeas, and cooked beets. You can easily make extra pickled onions to use on sandwiches too—they’ll keep in their liquid for up to three days in the refrigerator. Toss the salad just before serving so that the baby beets don’t bleed their color into the rest of the ingredients. If you’re not a fan of beets, replace them with diced, steamed winter squash.
