not beeting around the bush

I was looking for the slackers way to make beets without going to the trouble of roasting, peeling and almost exhausting myself before getting around to actually eating them.  Here is a simple no fuss raw beet salad recipe, just make sure you don’t wear white whilst dithering about with these suckers.

Beet Salad

3 beets peeled and washed (I used a combo of golden and red)

1/2 a large sweet onion

2 tbsp chopped cornichons or capers

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp good quality mustard

3 tbsp oil oil

1/2 tsp both salt and pepper

1/4 c crumbled feta cheese (optional)

Using a box grater, grate beets and onion and place in a bowl.

Looks like a crime scene or a bad Jackson Pollock!

Add the cornichons or capers, salt and pepper and stir.  Whisk together the mustard, lemon juice and olive oil to make a dressing.  Pour over beet mixture and stir well.  Let sit at least 30 mins before serving.

    One of my favourite cafes serves that here with a few other ingrediants and they call it a “Power Salad”.
