Can this be eaten cold as a side to salmon and salad?

Even my kids love it! My kids won’t eat beetroot... but they will eat this and ask for more. Quick and easy to prep too.

Really nice way to eat beetroot, and so versitile. I have made this to go with roast dinners, goats cheese salad and even cold its nice with ham or cheese board for a savory last course. Even my kids like it, so that is always a winner.. :-)

Tasted like beetroot usually does...if I made it again I would leave it to marinade in the dressing for an hour to see if it added flavour.

This is amazing! I've made this 2 days in a row now and my housemates loved it too! Try adding a little rosemary as well.

Made this yesterday - very easy and very delicious. I will make it again - p'raps to top a salad, or pastry with feta cheese.
