Need to make a dish for a gathering or a brunch? Put this quick Steamed Beetroot Salad Recipe together in a matter of minutes!
Steamed beets have been available at every single grocery store lately and I am here for it! Especially in this steamed beet salad recipe! Beets have such a balanced earthy taste that can be loved by people of all ages. Growing up we ate raw red beet salad often with just a sprinkle of salt and red chili powder (that’s another recipe for ya) but now I love them even more steamed. The texture plus ease of compiling meals makes it a must have in my kitchen.
Seriously though- can I just say how thankful I am that they are available pre-steamed? They are the perfect addition to almost any meal or even a smoothie. My kids love them as an addition to almost any dish.
In this beetroot salad case, if a meal can be compiled in a matter of minutes, you better believe it’s going to be added to my menu REPEATEDLY! So yes, we eat this beet salad often. In fact, I posted about it a year or so ago and thought the recipe deserved a spot on my blog since we eat it so much. So here I am writing about it :).
For this recipe, I highly recommend every single ingredient as is. These few simple ingredients go a long way to please a big crowd. Meaning, it’s not spicy or packed with intense flavors. Hence, no curry powders here-haha.
The feta and dill add a great flavor to the earthy beet base. They compliment each other really well; just as they would in any mediterranean meal. It is also the perfect meal for a picnic, gathering, or a brunch! I have made it a few times for my friends at our regular brunch parties and it is always a hit! Feel free to compile this dish a day before and refrigerate before serving.
