Beet It

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
olive oil
balsamic vinegar

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.

We are currently eating thick slices of homegrown tomatoes with feta, basil, salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar... Beets sound good too!
