- 6 large beetroots peeled
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 3 cloves crushed Garlic
- half a cup of apple cider vinegar
- half a cup of olive oil
- half a cup of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- Water for boiling
Dice the beetroot into 1cm cubes.
In a large pot of boiling water add the sugar* and beetroot.
Allow to boil until tender enough to stick a fork in.
Drain and cool the beetroot and put aside in a large bowl
In another bowl, mix the crushed garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt and lemon juice.
Tip dressing over the beetroot and gently/briefly mix through
Allow 1 day for the beetroot to absorb the flavour and enjoy.
* Sugar is optional. It helps to bring the boiling water temperature up higher and will cook the beetroot faster.
