These tasty sandwiches combine hearty roasted beets with smoky salmon and tangy yogurt. While they’re fantastic sliced into finger sandwiches, they’re also good left whole—and make a great lunch when paired with a green salad.
What to buy: Greek yogurt can be found in most grocery stores. We like the Fage brand.
Cold-smoked salmon is available at most grocery stores and is the most common smoked salmon available. If you can’t find it, go ahead and substitute gravlax.

Beverage pairing: Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, California. Rich brown bread, dark beets, and smoked fish all call out for a rich, malty beer. An amber ale is a good fit, such as this one from Northern California. It has just enough hops to keep it interesting, but the sharpness is not accentuated, which makes it a good pair with food.
