Beet salad recipe famous (Pancar salatası tarifi)
famous beet salad recipe
1 lb fresh beets
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1 Tbsp chives or scallions, chopped
½ tsp salt to taste
Boil the beets for about 15-20 minutes. Drain and run cold water over. Then, peel the outer layer off with your hands. It should come off easy. Either slice in rounds or quarters as in apple slices (I did in rounds).
Take the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix them well. Take the beets slices over the serving plate and pour the sauce all over. You may toss the beet slices gently to mix the sauce evenly, then leave them in the fridge for 1-2 hours for a better flavor.
If desired serve with feta cheese or goat cheese.
