This was nice for a change, but not fantastic, beetroot slightly undercooked

I loved this salad which I made tonight with fish and new potatoes. Very quick and easy to make, such a nice way to eat beetroot. Looking forward to having the leftovers cold for tomorrow's lunch.

We love this salad. Sometimes I add grated carrot at the end with the honey etc. Good either hot or cold

I love this! I can't stop making it.
I served this with Garlic and Rosemary roasted leg of lamb with watercress salad and small roasties done in the garlic and rosemay oil from the meat.
The earthiness but sweetness of the beetroot went so well with the lamb.
It is so quick and easy to make, everybody who has tried it has really liked it too. I am taking a big bowlful to a BBQ this weekend :)

This is lovely! So easy to rustle up and very healthy. Makes a fantastic side dish for roast chicken, and I look forward to trying it with sausages, as someone else has suggested here. If only raw beetroot was more readily available! Will have to try growing my own. This recipe is my new favourite thing to do with raw beetroot.

Delicious. Had it hot tonight with some left over for tomorrow cold. Kids weren't such a fan, but they did try it.

To add to what I have already said, I think even kids would like this served with sausages or homemade burghers.

Please try this. IT IS DELICIOUS. I served it with roast pheasants but it would be equaly as good with pork. It is Christmasy and happy and so good for you
