A few weeks ago I was looking for a new way to enjoy all the fantastic beets at the market and I came up with this yummy warm salad:
1 tsp (5 mL) curry paste
1 tbsp (15 mL) each minced fresh ginger and cider vinegar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each honey and minced fresh garlic
1/8 tsp (1 mL) ground cardamom
3 tbsp (45 mL) canola or extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper
6 cups (1.5 L) warm or room temperature cooked beets
1 baby English cucumber, thinly sliced
1 green onion, thinly sliced
Blend the curry paste, honey, ginger and vinegar together until smooth. Stir in the garlic and while whisking, drizzle in the oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the beets, cucumber and green onions. Toss to combine.
How do you like to prepare beets? Are you big on borscht or pleased by pickles?
