SALAD

BEET AND ONION SALAD

HOME > MAIN > ANTIPASTI
Insalata di barbabietole e cipolle
Rome - Lazio
Serves 8
Preparation - Easy

Can be served as an antipasto or a salad. If you can get beets with their stalks, trim the stalks to within 2 inches of the stem.

A variation of the salad can be made by slicing the beets thin and marinating them for 2 hours with 10 fresh basil leaves, salt, and vinegar. Mix with sliced fennel and olive oil.
  • 2 lbs beets
  • 1 medium yellow onion or 2 medium Bermuda onions
  • coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4-cup extra virgin olive oil, or more to taste
  • 2 T wine vinegar, or more to taste

Leave about 2 inches of stem on the beets.

Wash, then place in cold water to cover, bring to a boil, and boil gently for about 1 hour, or until tender. Or cook in a pressure cooker with cold water to cover for 10 minutes, or in a 325°F oven until tender, 1 to 2 hours, according to freshness. Test with a fork to be sure they are cooked through.

Cool and slip off the skins.

Slice the beets and onion thin and place in a salad bowl.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and dress with the oil and vinegar.

NOTE: This can be prepared several hours in advance.
