Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.
Her beetroot salad is truly tasty and literally consist of cooked beetroot, sliced onion, sugar, salt and vinegar to taste. That’s it. No frills, no fuss. She cooks it in great big batches and it keeps for weeks on end in the fridge!
Here in England raw beetroot by the crate is not really as easily available like it is back in South Africa. However, here we get our beetroot already cooked so no more struggling over a hot stove for hours ensuring that you don’t have purple splashes everywhere by the time the beetroot is cooked through.
My version is a little different than my mother’s, but is equally as tasty and super quick.
This is all depending on how much salad you would like to make and also according to your taste, so please feel free to adjust.
