It may sound unusual or exotic to you, but roasted beet salad is a culinary delight that I highly recommend. Beetroot is very tasty and sweet, and if you combine it with spices and other delicious ingredients, it becomes an irrefragable delight!
Generally, beets are cooked by baking, boiling, or roasting. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages and I will not enter into a dispute about which is the best. For this salad, you can use any method you want, it is important that the beets are cooked and soft. Moreover, you can also use canned beets if you want to greatly shorten the cooking time.
Personally, I like to bake the beets in the oven first of all because the water is removed from it leisurely and the beets become very sweet. This does not mean that I do not cook beets by boiling or even roasting when I want they have a slightly smoky taste!
One of the important things when making this beet salad is to cut beets into thin slices or medium-sized cubes. This is necessary both for ease of serving and for impregnating the beets with the rest of the ingredients and a better combination of flavors.
The use of lettuce brings extra freshness, vitamins, and flavor. I recommend cutting it into very thin strips and it should be very fresh to be crispy.
There is not much to say about the feta, most of them know how delicious this cheese of Greek origin is. If you don’t have it at hand, you can replace it with another type of matured salted cheese, regardless of whether it comes from sheep, goats, or cows.
Regardless of the cheese you use, do not mix the ingredients after adding it to the bowl because the beets will color it and the salad will have an unpleasant appearance.
As for seasoning the beet salad, it is very simple. However, the taste of the salad is divine because all the ingredients fit perfectly and help create a delicacy worthy of any gourmet!
The use of cumin is not mandatory but it is strongly recommended. It gives an extra flavor to the salad, goes well with beets and feta, and, in addition, helps a lot in digestion.
This salad can be served on its own, especially when you are on a diet or simply want to have a snack or a frugal meal.
Of course, it can be served with other dishes. For example, I really like to serve it next to baked chicken or grilled chicken. This combination is irresistibly extra delicious and, therefore, I recommend you try it as soon as possible!
Enjoy the roasted beet salad with feta!
