Beet and Parsley Salad with Welsh Rarebit Croutons

Salads are great, but sometimes you need a bit of substance. Enter: Welsh rarebit croutons, a delicious cheese-on-toast combo just waiting to adorn your bed of greens. Salad will never be boring again!

This salad, with the addition of beets and some wintery greens, features Welsh rarebit — a type of British grilled cheese, like the French croque monsieur, that is perfect for a brisk night. I made the little rarebit toasts into the sort of croutes I made while living in Paris, crispy and hugged with warm cheese. Thinly sliced raw beets add snap and an earthy sweetness to this fantasy bistro plate.
