Beet Salad Ingredients

Dollhouse Shortcut

Purchase pre-cooked beets and skip straight to the dressing portion of the recipe.

  • 9 beets
  • olive oil

Beet Salad Directions

Wash the beets.

Cut off the stems and roots from each.

Place them in a pyrex pan or other oven-safe dish.

Drizzle olive oil sparingly over each one.

Fill the pan with halfway with water.

Cover the pyrex with foil.

Bake at 350° for one hour.

Cool for 30 minutes before removing skins. If they’re still too hot to touch, submerge them in a pot or bowl of ice water for 5 minutes. Remove skins using your fingers or a paring knife.

Cut the beets using a knife or cookie cutters. I used a small heart-shaped cookie cutter from my heart set.
