So this is actually a ridiculously simple beet salad, but I got it from my friend Melanie who just got back from Morocco. Apparently she knows at least two other recipes for beet salad, but this is her favorite:
4 small-medium sized beets
1/2-3/4 cup beet juice(produced by boiling the beets)
juice of one lemon
2-4 Tbsp sugar (to taste)
Boil beets whole, then cool, and remove skins. Dice. Mix the juice produced from boiling them with lemon juice and sugar. Pour the sauce over the diced beets. Serve chilled as an appetizer.
She also serves most dishes with a really simple side salad as well:
Salt (more than you think)
Vinegar (white is fine)
Remove the seeds from the tomatoes, then dice. Dice cucumbers. Combine everything. Apparently this is just the basic salad they eat with everything, but it's very refreshing for those of us who like cucumbers.
