On the Menu: Kasha and Beet Salad with Celery and Feta (with a twist) ;-)

Kasha and Beet Salad with Celery and Feta (page 92)

 

I made this oh, so yummy beet salad again yesterday (one of my all-time favs) 😉 this time with a slight variation.

I didn’t have any kasha, so I used black rice instead (ancient, organic variety). I’m a big fan of this type of rice, so good! 😉

I also used lots of  finely chopped fresh dill instead of parsley. It turned out great!

If you love beets, this is a recipe you won’t want to miss.

Perfect for adding to lunches, or as a side or vegetarian main dish. Would also be great for a potluck or buffet dinner.

Check out the recipe and review of the cookbook by Judith Finlayson, that this wonderful recipe is from. 

What’s on the menu at your place?

Happy Cooking!

  6. Never been much of a salad person except on rare occasion Italian antipasto. But this looks tasty.

  7. I love baking organic beets and then marinating them, that way, I can add them to a number of dishes or eat them as is, the best part is that they keep, a quick version of pickled beats.
    This salad looks so delicious, my mouth is watering!
