Honey Lemon Beetroot Salad

Honey Lemon Beetroot Salad by Carole's Chatter
The only problem with this Honey Lemon Beetroot Salad is not to be clumsy and spill it onto your tablecloth like somebody did!  I used canned beetroot but of course you could cook and pickle your own.
The beetroot just has a little finely diced red onion with it – just a couple of slices.

The dressing is made by whisking together:

Zest of half a lemon

Juice of half a lemon

A splash of honey cider vinegar

A spoonful of honey

A splash of Limoncello (optional)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt and pepper (I like using white peppe

Pour the dressing over the beetroot and let it sit for a minimum of 2 hours.  If I had had fresh herbs on had I would have sprinkled some on the top for colour.

  1. This sounds like a refreshing salad for Spring/Summer. Thanks!

  2. Beets are very colorful -- wherever they end up!

  3. I love beets and this citrusy dressing looks like a good complement.

  4. i love beet salad and usually use a good apple cider vinegar, but the lemon (and the lemonchello sound like a wonderful acid exchange! I must try this

  5. I have to admit I'm not a fan of pickled beets. I'll never forget the time my grandma paid me a dollar to eat one. I got the dollar but I didn't enjoy it. ;)
