Healthy beetroot salad

I go through phases of being really ‘into’ certain foods, and during summer I really dig beetroot for some reason. I remembered this at the supermarket earlier so picked up some vacuum packed tastiness and made this quick vegetarian salad. I used one grated carrot, some red onion, betroot, cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and topped it with some steamed asparagus. Tastes good enough on its own for lunch or would serve as a tangy side dish to some baked fish or grilled chicken.

I’m looking forward to having the rest of the beetroot in a salad with some feta cheese. Do you have any other good recipes for beetroot?
