Beet Salad With Curd


Beets make a delicious side dish for just about any protein, be it meat, fish, or fowl. Here the beets are peeled first and then boiled until knife tender. A food processor makes fast work of cutting them into strips. They pair particularly well with cherry tomatoes and cottage cheese (or quark) for a sort of slaw, with a sprinkling of cilantro and a drizzle of olive oil added just before serving.


3 beets (large, or 4 smaller)
20 cherry tomatoes (minis, or less if larger)
4 slices curd cheese
fresh coriander (to taste)
coarse salt (to taste)
balsamic vinegar (to taste)
virgin olive oil (to taste)


1Boil the beets without the bark in water seasoned with salt.
2Place them in food processor to make strips.
3Place on a serving dish.
4Season with salt, vinegar and olive oil.
5Add the whole cherry tomatoes and cream cheese cubes.
6Sprinkle with fresh cilantro leaves.
7Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
