Red beet salad

IMG_0764My mum used to make this salad, and I was eating at my aunt’s last week and she had it on the menu.  It must be a family recipe!  My kids love it (the fact that it’s pink probably helps), and it’s super simple to make.  And of course extremely healthy, as red beets are low in fat, high on carbohydrates and full of anti-oxidants and folic acid!
Pre-cooked red beets can be found in the supermarket’s grocery section, and they can usually be kept for quite some time.  Good to have around!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 3 medium sized red beets, cooked, peeled and diced
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 to 3 full spoonfulls of thick yoghurt, or sour cream or something similar
  • 2 to 3 full spoonfulls of mayonaise
  • a touch of curry powder (optional)

Mix mayonaise and yoghurt with curry powder.  Taste and add more mayonaise or yoghurt if necessary.  Stir through other ingredients.  Serve.

Sounds yummie. We make the same salad but with pieces of sour herring instead of the apple (without the curry powder). You should try this variation!
