Beetroot Salad

BM # 26   Day 1

Summer is the time when we love to eat those chilled salads .I wish I could go on just salads for a while, but somehow just cant do that.My son is one salad freak and he loves to go on a month long salad diet.This is the time when my frantic search on google begins. It’s rare that I repeat the salads. For the last week of BM #26 I have picked up salads. So for the first day , here is a quick  simple salad, but with a wonderful taste, and quite filling too.

2 medium beet roots, boiled
1 onion, finely chopped onion
Handful crushed walnuts
Salt to taste
Black pepper
Lemon juice
Olive oil
Boil the beet root and peel it.
Cut it into slices.
In a bowl, mix beet root , onion, salt , pepper and some lemon juice.
Drizzle some olive oil.Mix .
Transfer to a serving plate .
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and walnuts.

  4. I love the crunch from the walnuts... wish my family eats beetroot - somehow everytime I make beetroot curry I pray that it gets eaten :-) Different strokes, different folks, I guess..

  15. I have never had beetroot salads. Walnuts and beetroot combination looks interesting. Will try these out soon.
