Jamie Oliver’s 5-ingredient Amazing Dressed Beets
If you love beetroot, this is the salad for you. Jamie Oliver's recipe, as seen on his Channel 4 series, Quick & Easy Food, uses just 5 flavour-packed ingredients, resulting in a brilliant midweek salad that's fast and simple to make.
|raw mixed colour baby beets, ideally with leaves
|½ a bunch (15g)
|of fresh tarragon
|crumbly goat's cheese
|shelled unsalted walnut halves
Reserving any nice smaller beet leaves, halve any larger beets and cook, covered, in a pan of boiling salted water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Meanwhile, squeeze the juice of 1 clementine into a large bowl with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a good splash of red wine vinegar. Peel the remaining 3 clementines, slice into fine rounds and arrange on your plates.
Drain the beets and briefly refresh in cold water until cool enough to quickly rub off the skins. Halve or slice a few, then toss them all in the dressing. Taste, season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, then pick in the tarragon and toss with the reserved beet leaves. Divide between your plates, crumble over the goat's cheese and walnuts, and drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil.
