Creamy salads that you would serve alongside the barbecue, with salads or top slices of bread with... I remember parents buying all kinds of salads, but they never appealed to me because I was only young and thought that mayonnaise wasn't actually tasty, when it turns out - that it is!
Sometimes beets on their own can be a little too....beety for myself, but I found that with this combination here, it cuts through that, and it turns out lovely and creamy. I lightened it up using light mayonnaise, but you can also mix 1/3 mayonnaise with 2/3 light yogurt, and you'll see that it will still hold the same lovely flavours!
(Makes 1 large tub)
250g cooked beetroot, finely diced
100g light mayonnaise (optionally 2 tbsp mayonnaise and 4-5 tbsp quark or light yogurt)
1 small onion or two shallots, finely chopped
1/2 apple, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
- Simply have all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Yes.... it is really that simple!
Serve with bread, or as an accompaniment with meaty mains, or as part of a salad.
This one goes out to my fellow Scandis and Eastern Europeans who are probably the most familiar with this!
Have you tried beetroot salad before?
