A healthy beetroot salad with a sweet and salty flavour. The dressing is made with honey and vinegar complimenting with the saltiness of the feta cheese. Beetroots are first peeled then roasted so you can that nice caramelisation on the outside. I find this better than peeling after. It is advisable to wear gloves when handling beetroots, as the juice will stain your hands, and that can last most of the day. For me personally that doesn’t bother me.

I used my home-grown beetroots, which were so easy to grow from seeds, no chemicals, no sprays, all one hundred percent organic goodness. I don’t have a large vege garden, but do enjoy growing a few veges for the fun of it. I find it so rewarding, and exciting to see what one seed can bring you. I do encourage everyone to try it. Even in pots, if you live in an apartment.

This is a very healthy salad, it’s delicious, and can be consumed as a complete meal. Enjoy my roasted beetroot salad with rocket, cheese and walnuts.
