Caramelised Beetroot salad

When I say caramelised I mean it…the beetroot almost turns into hard sweet balsamicy candy amazing-ness!! this recipe is so easy and tasty and you can really throw what ever you like into the salad. I think its a great summer salad with the freshness of the peat and I also added in some lemon juice/zest.

Ingredients

  • • 4 fresh beetroots
  • • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • • 2 tbsp honey
  • • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • • 1 bosc pear
  • • ½ cup walnuts
  • • 3 cups salad greens
  • • ½ cup feta (if you are vegan just skip out on the feta and honey)

Method

  1.  peel and cut the beetroots into bite size wedges
  2.  pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and quickly roast the walnuts
  3.  mix the vinegar, oil, honey and coconut sugar in a bowl. Add in the beetroot then coat generously in the sauce
  4.  spread the pieces of beetroot over a lined baking tray and leave in the oven for 20-30 minutes just keep an eye on them you want it to turn into a dark balsamic colour with bits caramelising and bubbling away around it, not black and charcoal (I found a fine line between the two)
  5.  once the beetroot is ready and cooled add it to the salad greens along with the chopped walnuts, feta and slices of pear. Enjoy! Xx
