Polish classic beetroot salad

In Poland we love beetroots! We prepare them in many different ways: marinated, as salads, warm side dishes, as a spread mixed with horseradish and of course - made into soups, like botwinka and worldwide known borstch! This simple salad is one of my favorites - doesn't take long to make, it's slightly sweet and sour and goes well with any meat dishes you can think of - cutlets, stews, meatballs etc. 

  • 3-4 cooked beetroots (you can buy them precooked or cook yourself)
  • 1 onion
  • 1tbs sugar
  • 2tbs vinegar
  • 3tbs oil
  • salt & pepper to taste  
Shred beetroots on a large mesh grater. Add finely chopped onion, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add sugar, oil and vinegar. Mix all of the ingredients using a spoon and let it rest for about 15 minutes before serving to let it "mature" and to get all of the tastes combined. 

Serve as a side dish or with meat-based delights.
