Roasted beet and feta is my favorite salad ever. I can't get enough of it. Definitely worth the work, and the cerise color is to die for.
You will need:
1kg of beets
1 disc of feta (approx 1/2 cup), cut into cubes
Trim the tops off the beets so that you have just a little tuft of green remaining. Wrap each beet in aluminum foil and put on an oven tray.
Roast at 200C for about 55 minutes, or until tender when poked with a fork.
Once the beets are cool, peel and cut into cubes.
Toss cubed beets with feta and about 2 tbsp of chopped parsley (or to taste). Drizzle over some olive oil and balsamic, and finish off with freshly ground pepper and just a pinch of salt.
Heaven! And healthy!
I just made some and had to put it away before I spoil my dinner at the Macau restaurant later this evening with friends.
