Beetroot with Chorizo, Feta and Mint

Salad | July 22, 2012 | By

This recipe has been inspired by a recipe from BBC Good Food July 2012.  However, I made some changes in the method to suit my own purposes!


Beetroot with chorizo, feta and
mint (serves 2)
1 pack cooked beetroot
½ regular cooking chorizo, cubed
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
100g feta, crumbled
Handful of mint, roughly chopped
Drizzle olive oil
Salad leaves
Lay the salad leaves on the place
2.        Slice the beetroot and lay out on the leaves
3.       Add
the chorizo to a hot frying pan, be careful it doesn’t burn
4.       When
cooked add the balsamic vinegar and cook for 1 minute
5.       Tip
the chorizo and vinegar onto the beetroot
6.       Crumble
the feta over the salad and sprinkle with chopped mint
Drizzle a little olive oil over the salad and serve
I  enjoyed this salad, with it’s combination of sweet, sour, salty, earthy flavours and even more because we managed to eat it outside!  Back to rain and wind today, but for one brief day, we had a little bit of summer.
I’m entering this into Herbs on Saturday run by Karen at Lavender and Lovage and, this month, hosted by Vanesther at Bangers and Mash

    I do love beetroot and this looks so scrummy! A lovely entry for July's Herbs on Saturday – thanks for entering!

    This looks delicious! I'm not a big fan of mint though – any suggestions on what I could substitute it with?

    A FABULOUS recipe for Herbs on Saturday thanks Janice and I LOVE the addition of the mint, which, I bet goes so well with the beetroot! Karen

    Hey Janice,
    You know what? I tried to make this 2 times before (finally) successfully pleased my family.
    But it is worth the hard work. LOL.
    Anyway, thank you for making me look like a professional. 🙂
    you can submit your beetroot with chorizo feta and mint photos to Food Photography to make others hungry.
    You know it’s fun to make others hungry. Especially when they are so hungry they finally want to create your recipe. 🙂
    It is worth the try. 🙂
