Beetroot Salad Recipe: How To Make Beetroot Salad
First, season the beetroot with salt, pepper and olive oil. Wrap in aluminium foil and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 25-30 minutes. Trim the beetroot by taking out the skin and cut these into cubes. Leave the trimmings aside for later use. Transfer the beetroot into a bowl and add the cooked red chowli, ripe mango, raw mango and tomato.
To prepare the vinaigrette, in a blender, add all the leftover beetroot trimmings, orange zest, orange juice, salt, pepper, olive oil and mix well. In a tray, season the spring onions with salt, pepper and 1 tsp of olive oil. Grill the asparagus stalks until they become a little soft. Next, crumble the feta cheese in a bowl and season it with zataar spice. Pour the dressing over the beetroot salad and mix well. Transfer the salad onto a plate, garnish with spring onions, grilled asparagus and the crumbled zataar spiced feta.
