Just love this! Have made it loads as I grow lots of beetroot in the garden. I can eat bowl fulls of it! I always just grate the beetroot with grating attachment on the food processor. So quick and easy.

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.
