Super easy beet salad

By | September 7, 2011

I definitely like to potchke. Latkes that call for six different vegetables instead of one? I’m on it. Making two different batters for one cookie? I’m there. And I know that’s nothing compared to what the professionals do.

But as much as I enjoy puttering around in the kitchen, I also appreciate the simple, no-fuss recipes. This beet salad is one of them.

If you don’t mind dealing with fresh parsley (I’m telling you, it’s worth it!), the ingredient list is no big deal. The directions are also really simple, and since it’s meant to be served cold, you can throw this together Friday morning and not give it another thought until you take it out of the fridge right before lunch the next day.

It also happens to be gorgeous. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but…come on. Beets have this crazy purple color by nature! And fresh parsley is so green! They look so good together! (Is anyone with me on this?)

So. This salad is healthy, pretty, easy to prepare, and can be served cold. Also, it’s cheap. Yep, rave reviews all around.

This looks really good. Is the heinz salad vinegar a white vinegar? Thanks!

White vinegar is one of the ingredients, so it would probably be okay in a pinch.
