Beetroot salad with green pistachio sauce5 comments Jun 14th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings
This salad is easy to do if you can get a hold of pre-boiled beets. I do not mean the pickled ones, just boiled. I can get those beetroots here in 500 gram vacuum bags in the bio store. They taste great and turn this into a fantastically fast salad to do.
Preparation time: 5 minuntes
- 500 gram beetroot, boiled
- 150 pistachio nuts, peeled
- a hand full of parsley leafs
- a hand full of mint leafs
- some juice of a lemon
- a bit of lemon zest
- a good sip of olive oil
- a dash of sugar
- salt and pepper
Peel the pistachios.
Pick a hand full of mint leafs and a hand full of parsley. Wash and dry the leafs. Put them into a blender. Add the pistachios.
Now add a bit of grated lemon zest. Not too much, it tends to be quite intense.
Season with salt and pepper and a bit of sugar. Add some lemon juice, half a cup of olive oil and a few drops of water and blend. Do not blend too smooth. The pistachios and the greens can still be a bit chunky.
Die Rote Beete in Scheiben schneiden und das Pistazien Dressing darüber verteilen. Den Salat kalt stellen oder sofort servieren.
