How to Make Beet Salad

  • Start with roasted beets, a process that brings out their natural sweetness. Wash and peel the beets, cut them into even pieces and roast them in the oven until tender. This step is crucial to achieve a smooth texture and a more concentrated flavor.
  • While the beets are roasting, toast the sunflower seeds in a frying pan. The medium heat will bring them to a perfect brown, intensifying their flavor and adding a crunchy touch to the salad.
  • Walnuts also play an important role. You can leave them whole for a more robust bite or chop them if you prefer a more delicate texture. Whatever your choice, walnuts add a touch of creaminess and nutrition.

Assembling the salad

Once the beets are done, place them in a large bowl. Add the toasted sunflower seeds and walnuts. This combo provides a perfect blend of textures, from the smoothness of beetroot to the crunch of seeds and walnuts.


Drizzle the salad generously with extra-virgin olive oil. Not only does this ingredient enhance the flavors, but it also adds health benefits. Add salt and pepper to taste to balance the flavors and create a complete dining experience.

Cooking ideas with beetroot

The versatility of beetroot opens up a range of culinary possibilities that transform your dishes in surprising ways. Experiment with incorporating fresh leafy greens, such as spinach or arugula, to boost the nutrient content of your beet salad. Adding these veggies not only intensifies the health benefits, but also brings a blend of flavors and textures that elevate your dining experience. Also, don't miss the opportunity to include the toasted sunflower seeds in your salad; Not only do they lend a crunch, but they also introduce a slightly bitter taste that contrasts exceptionally well with the natural sweetness of beetroot. This combination becomes the ideal protagonist for a light summer salad, being a refreshing and versatile choice both as a revitalizing main course and as a vibrant accompaniment to various meals.


With all these elements, the salad becomes a culinary masterpiece that not only satisfies your taste buds but also nourishes your body with fresh and healthy ingredients. Transform your summer meals with this delicious option that is sure to become a star dish in your gastronomic repertoire. Enjoy your meal!
