Tasty Facts

– Select for harvesting medium beets with rich burgundy flesh without white streaks. Such beets will turn out juicy in a salad and will not lose their texture during harvesting.

– Chopped onions and carrots can be fried until golden brown before cooking the salad. You can do this right at the bottom of the pot (or in the multicooker bowl in the “Frying” mode), with a little oil and adding a teaspoon of turmeric.

– It is recommended to serve beetroot salad as an appetizer, having previously mixed sour cream, mayonnaise or mayonnaise-based sauce. You can add pickles, olives, pickled peppers , fresh herbs and chopped garlic to the salad. Also, this salad can be served on sandwiches.

– Beetroot salad can be used as a dressing for borscht .

– Beetroot salad can be prepared without vinegar, but then you need to add sour apples (0.5 kilograms of apples per 1 kilogram of beets).

– When cooking salad, you can add spices: cloves, black pepper, bay leaf. Additionally, from the ingredients, you can add 2-3 bell peppers or a pound of cabbage for every kilogram of beets.
