We are back to beetroot again – and home grown beetroot is simply the best. As soon as you begin to work with it, that earthy beetroot scent invades the kitchen. Raw beetroot, not often used, is not only good for us (lots of roughage), its texture and taste is perfect for salads. Crunchy! Plus beetroot salads add such a colourful element to the dinner table.
What other beetroot dishes would you like? Similar dishes include Kohlrabi, Beetroot and Celery Leaf Salad, Slightly Pickled Beetroot Salad with Mustard, Beetroot, Orange and Olive Salad, Beetroot and Carrot Salad, Roasted Beetroot Salad with Sweetcorn, and Beets in a Herb Dressing.
This is another Bittman Salad, adapted from his 101 Salads. We have a project to make them all, at least the vegetarian ones, as they are all very healthy and amazing salads. You can browse other ones we’ve made here.
This salad I have adapted quite a bit, adding ingredients from my garden.
