Pickled beetroot and feta salad

Method

  • Clean the beetroots and cut them into 0.5-1 cm cubes. 
  • Put them in a saucepan over high heat and add the water, the orange juice, the apple cider vinegar, the olive oil, the sugar, the salt, and -optionally- the pepper. 
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat, and simmer until the beetroots are tender, for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let the pickled beets cool well.
  • Transfer to a jar and store it in the refrigerator for 5 days, if you want. 
  • Put the salad mix in a bowl, place the beets and the feta cheese on top, sprinkle with the pine nuts and, if you want, add a little of the pickled beet juice. 
  • Check the seasoning and serve. 

Tip

The beetroots and the feta cheese are “strong” enough and so, you do not need to add extra salt to your salad.
