We’ve “outsourced” this salad for the party, it takes quite a while to roast enough beetroot for 50 people. An easy delicious salad that can be made in advance. This salad / veg is quite a regular in our circle of friends….
For the Roasted beetroot, red onion and balsamic salad you will need:
10 x red beetroot, washed and each beetroot sliced in 8
6 x red onions, peeled and quartered
125 ml balsamic vinegar
135 ml brown sugar
125ml olive oil
salt and pepper
2 x whole heads of garlic with the tops cut off
Put all the ingredients in a zip lock bag and give it a good shake to evenly distribute the sugary liquid around the beetroot and onions.
Bake in a flat oven tray on 170 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes, the beetroot needs to shrink in size and well cooked with a glossy syrupy shine to them, don’t let it brown, cover with foil if need be…
Serve at room temperature
