Don’t you all think that I should be posting some nice and indulgent sweets, pies, cakes and cookies since holiday/Christmas season is here !. Apparently some one asked me if I am going to post some of those and I jokingly said , “Well, I have a salad to post. I am planning the posts for beyond the Christmas season and for new year resolutions " !! Just kidding, apparently I've few list of drafts pending that I need to share with you all. Enjoy the season with all the sweets and savories. I am going to make some Goan Christmas specials and will post them in coming days. For the mean time enjoy the roasted beetroot salad!
Beet has lot of medicinal value and you can find more info here. I have slightly roasted them in a pan and if one prefers, can make use of oven. The salad dressing made up of honey and olive oil is awesome!
2 cup greens, chopped (used lettuce)
2 leaves of beetroots, chopped
1/4 cup carrots, grated
2 beetroots, sliced
1/2 tsp oil
salt to season (if required)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1. Remove the skin of the beetroots and thinly slice.
2. Heat oil in a pan and roast them on med-high heat for 5 –10 mins or according to softness required. Season with salt if desired.
3. For dressing: Combine the ingredients mentioned and whisk.
4. Arranging: Take a salad bowl or plate layer with the greens, beet greens and carrots. Top with the roasted beets. Drizzle with the dressing or serve on side. Top with some feta cheese if required !!!
Preparation Time: 10 – 15 mins
Serves: 1 - 2
