Roast beet root salad

20140216-102732.jpg

It’s not summer yet but delicious ingredients can help me think of warmer weather.

This is the chef’s take on a roast beetroot salad. If there’s beetroot on a dish I’m having it!

So you’ll need:

Cooked chunks of beetroot, pan roasted
Diced red peppers
Crunchy shredded iceberg
Dry pan toasted pine-nuts
Finely sliced onion
Fresh tomatoes
Soft gobbets of white goats cheese

The big secret:
Home made honey and mustard dressing. It’s made with:
cider vinegar
virgin olive oil
Zaanseschans coarse whole grain Dutch mustard
our own local honey

Method

Combine cold ingredients.
Add pine nuts and warm beetroot.
Serve with your chosen carbohydrate. We had gluten free bread but new potatoes would be lovely too.
Add dressing.

Works well with walnuts and mozzarella instead.

    Ooh, we had roast beetroot yesterday too. Do you ever have spare honey to sell, or do you not make enough for your own use throughout the year? How fabulous to be able to incorporate in your dinners πŸ™‚

      We have sold some through a local shop. As it was our first year last year we didn’t have very much. The main emphasis is on helping the bees so the honey is a bonus.
