Beetroot salad – hints and tips

Try to buy baby beetroot that are already cooked and packed – this can generally be found in the vegetable section in the supermarket.  You could also use tinned beetroot or that in jars but remember to drain well and remove any brine.

If you want to use your own homegrown beetroot, wash well under cold running water, then boil in salted water for 45 mins – 2 hours, depending on the size of the beetroot.  Cool and peel before using.

Ensure you leave the stalk and root attached to the beetroot when boiling and try not to damage the skin – this will stop the beetroot from bleeding while cooking and losing any of its rich dark colour.
