Ep. 55 – beet and orange salad

Actually a garnish of 3 ingredients, but it became a salad due to my lack of inspiration. 🙂 Yes, sometimes it happens to me too…

Beetroot, washed, cleaned and sliced, placed in a tray (I prefer on baking paper), greased with olive oil and spices (salt, pepper, thyme, etc.), put in the oven over medium heat until softness (but is not burnt 🙂). Bourdain used baby beet – if you have a garden and grow something like that, you will probably be able to use it too… in the supermarket you can only find it ready boiled in a jar.

Red onion, chopped or cut into thin slices, according to preference.

Peeled or sliced oranges. I used red oranges, a little sour. :))

Dress it in oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, plus some mint. If you suffer from chronic laziness, just throw a drop of balsamic vinegar on top and the salad is ready. 🙂

No, the truth is, it turned out really good. 🙂

The recipe is from the second book proposed at the cookingbookclub in March / April Appetites: A Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain. The next book comes out in early May.
