Beetroot, Potato, Borlotti Bean and Feta Salad
Hey guys, whipped this up for dinner tonight, you could serve it as an entree or a main. I followed no recipe, I only started with the knowledge that beetroot and feta go well together :). I know its pretty vague, but thats how I cook all of the time if I'm not following a recipe. You could also use balsamic vinegar instead of the lemon juice, but the zest does give it a nice zing.
roasted beetroot, cut into bite-sized chunks
potatoes, cut into bite-sized chunks, roasted until crispy
cooked borlotti beans (or use canned ones)
lemon juice and finely grated zest
extra-virgin olive oil
Make a dressing to taste with a small amount of crushed garlic, lemon juice, bit of lemon zest, the olive oil and salt and pepper.
Plonk some rocket down on your serving plates, put your chunks of potatoes and beetroot down on top of it, scatter however many borlotti beans you want and crumble some feta over the top of it. Drizzle all of this with the dressing.
Rip up some mint leaves and scatter over the dish as well as a liberal sprinkling of lemon zest with some more rocket leaves if you want.
