Beetroot's vivid colour provides a dramatic addition to any plate, but with its sweet, earthy flavour and high nutritional value the vegetable is much more than just an aesthetic addition. Our collection of beetroot salad recipes highlight the versatility of this popular superfood, whether it's roasted, pickled, boiled or left raw for added crunch.
Bruno Loubet's simple roast beetroot salad recipe is beautifully dressed with fresh parsley and walnut oil, while Tom Aiken opts for a pickled beetroot salad which matches well with salty feta and crunchy pine nuts.
Simon Hulstone's golden beetroot salad uses the lesser known yellow variety, with green watercress and snowy goat's cheese setting off the plate. For a touch of sophistication, Marcus Wareing's smoked baby beetroot salad introduces the art of home-smoking with the beets infused with fragrant Lapsang Souchong tea.
