Beet and Feta Salad

Beet and Feta Salad

For a long time I've enjoyed the taste of pickled beets, but only recently have I become a fiend for fresh beets. Now I find I'm always on the lookout for new ideas with beets, especially as beets are currently in season. As I also adore Feta cheese, I made this beet and Feta salad the day after I found the recipe. The strong taste of beetroot goes very well with the sharp flavor of Feta cheese.

  • 2 lb (900 g) beets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup Feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
  • Trim the green tops from the beets and wash well. In a large saucepan, boil the beats until they are tender enough to be pierced with a fork - about 1 hour, depending on the size of the beets used. When the beets are done, remove them from the heat and let them cool. Remove the skins and cut into wedges.

  • To make the vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar and salt and pepper. Arrange the beets on a platter and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Sprinkle with the cheese and fresh mint.

This sounds a great combination to me. I often put beetroot in my salads for work and add either cheddar or feta, but it looks great served this way and so eyecatching!

I personally can't resist a beetroot recipe - especially when in combination with fetta. Thanks for this recipe Lisa.
