Beetroot Salad

Before I start the post, let’s get one thing straight, I hate salads. Healthy is fine by me but they are just too healthy for my palate. Unfortunately, for me, my husband and my mum loves them. So, I try to make them from time to time. That being said, I don’t make a bad salad. In fact, this beet turned out quite good. Even, I had them 😉

Ingredients:

Baby or tiny beetroots – a dozen

Rocket leaves – 2 handfuls

Balsamic vinegar – 2-3 tbsp

Olive oil – 1 tbsp

Salt flakes and crushed pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Wash and trim the ends of the beets. Steam them in salted water with skin intact.Beetroot salad 1
