Roasted Beet, Feta, and Mint Salad

Roasted beet, feta, and mint salad stars some quintessential autumn ingredients to make the most of the season’s bounty of beets. Roasted and drizzled with a sweet tangy dressing, then tossed with salty feta, earthy beets are a perfect change from the lighter salads of summer.

We use fresh herbs in everything—you don’t want to ruin a nice meal with dried herbs. And it may seem obvious but make sure you actually like the taste of an herb before you flavor your dish with it! We often use mint but not everyone likes it, so just swap it for something you do like. At the end of the day, we’re not amazing chefs, we’re just two girls who love to cook, and having such fantastic and fresh produce is what makes our dishes work.–Kirsty Scobie & Fenella Renwick

Cooking with beets

Do I need to peel beets before cooking?

While this recipe instructs you to peel them, you don’t have to. Peeling them makes them cook a little faster and allows them to absorb the dressing a little better. Like potatoes and carrots, beets can be eaten without the outer skin being removed and it will up your fiber intake. So if you don’t mind the taste of beet peel, then leave it on. Just give ’em a good scrub and start chopping

This roasted beet salad is so easy and can be bulked up by adding some arugula and watercress. It is a lovely side for pan-fried smoked mackerel and crispy potatoes.
