Golden Beet Salad

This recipe is easy, quick, and so tasty. Awesome for a BBQ side dish or as a refreshing snack. You can make this a day ahead so that the flavors have time to blend together.

Golden Beet Salad

  • 5 golden beets peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup peeled and shredded carrots
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl toss all the ingredients together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. For best results serve cold or room temperature. You can substitute red beets if golden are not available. Bon appetite!

Sun Tzu in his book "The Art of War" says "There are not more than five cardinal tastes (sour, acrid, salt, sweet, bitter) yet combinations of them yield more flavors than can ever be tasted" I believe Chef Erik's history of ecclectic passion for gourmet cooking will allow us to enjoy a good variety of those tastes...
Of course I cant be partial :)
