Simple beet salad
This is one of those recipes that's just so easy to make.. You could hardly call it a recipe (since it only has 2 steps), but I liked it so much that I wanted to share it with you.
I guess most people who like beets sometimes have too much of them (leftovers..) and wonder how they can serve them in a different way than usual. I turned my leftovers into a simple, yet tasty salad.
You can make a meal out of it by adding in a few chopped boiled eggs, some shredded chicken, or some salmon or mackerel. All works really well! If you do still want it to be a salad, it might be wise to double the dressing ingredients so you'll keep the creamy texture.
And if you don't have any chives, spring onions, cilantro, parsley or even some mint will do the trick just fine. Well, I hope this inspires some people to get creative with those leftover beets!
Beet salad (serves 2)
- 2 cups finely chopped, cooked/roasted beets
- 1/3 cup coconut cream
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp chives, chopped
- black pepper
1. Combine coconut cream, lemon juice, chives and black pepper in a bowl and stir everything together.
2. Stir the coconut dressing into the chopped beets and serve. Enjoy!
