I don't know if many people do much with beetroot. Normally, I just tend to chop it up as it is, roasted or boiled, and then add it to salads. But I found a lovely way of eating it - with garlic and parsley.


The garlic adds pungency and a bit of tingle while the parsley gives it that deep, citrus, grassy flavour that I love. Use this combination to pep up your beetroot next time you have a salad. Lovely. 


Beetroot Salad with Garlic and Parsley
from my ebook SPICE
Serves 3-4, as a side salad
Ingredients
3 small beetroots, cooked, trimmed and peeled and left to cool (you can use the shop-bought cooked beets to save time, just don't use the ones in vinegar)
1 chunky garlic clove
small handful fresh parsley
1 tsp sherry vinegar (or use apple cider vinegar if strict AIP)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Method
Chop up the beetroot, into chunky bite-sized wedges. Roughly chop the garlic and the parsley and throw it into a bowl with the beetroot chunks. Stir in the sherry vinegar and the olive oil and stir to mix. You can add a pinch of salt, if you like too - check for seasoning and then serve.
