SWEET BEET CITRUS SALAD
If you never had raw beets before, you will be amazed how delicious this salad is. Adapted from Meghan Telpner’s recipe, I couldn’t believe how good this simple salad turned pout to be. This one is a keeper.
1 long beet
little juice from a fresh orange
little juice from fresh lemon
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
sesame seeds for garnish
• Peel the carrots and the beet, cutting off the tops and discard.
• Using a manual grater or the grater attachment of a food processor, grate the carrots and beets separately.
• Place the grated carrots and the beets in a salad bowl.
• Cut an orange and a lemon in half.
• Squeeze some fresh orange and lemon juice over the vegetables.
• Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with raw or lightly toasted sesame seeds.
• This can be served right of way, but will get even better in a couple of hours.
It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets.
