About this recipe: Beetroot and feta - two ingredients that are a match made in heaven. The sweetness of the beetroot goes so well with the piquant sourness of the feta. Add olive oil, salt, pepper... and there's little else you need to make a very elegant and tasty salad, which works particularly well as a starter.

Some tasty additions

If you want to get creative, try adding: toasted walnuts; toasted pine nuts; finely chopped fresh parsley or mint (or both); or tinned chickpeas.


If you're lucky enough to get the beetroot greens with your beetroots, try shredding the greens into very thin ribbons and sprinkling over the salad for colour and flavour.
