    This is a handy recipe to have. This summer, we grew beetroot and it was SO prolific we were giving it away left right and centre!!
    So, I’m grateful to have another way to prepare beetroot for my family! And we love salads too.
    Thanks!

    I love beet salad but I usually boil the beets. I will definitely try this one to add some variety to our menu plan.
    However, I love putting feta cheese on beet salad. Great match in my mind!

    This sound pretty yummy…but what’s the real proportion of olive oil to honey mustard in the dressing? The prose for the recipe calls for 2 Tbls. honey mustard to 1/2 olive oil, the ingredients list calls for olive oil and 1 Tbls. honey mustard and the directions in the recipe call for 1/4 cup olive oil and 1.5 Tbls. honey mustard. Which is it?

      Sorry for the confusion. When making this recipe we first tried the 1/4 cup olive oil and 1 TBSP honey mustard but it was to thick. So it should read 1/2 cup olive oil and 2 TBSP honey mustard.
