Just a food photo: Beetroot and blue cheese salad



Roasted sliced beetroot, crumbled Finnish Aura blue cheese, (a drizzle of good olive oil, perhaps) and some thyme. Mmmmm...

Can't go wrong with beets. Yum.

That is a combination I would never have thought of. I love beetroot and I love blue cheese so it has to be good.

Your post made me remember that I have beetroot in the fridge. I am off to cook them now. No blue cheese unfortunately, but I will find something. Love the simplicity of your recipe.

Oh, that looks delicious :)

This salad looked so delicious. Since I had beets and gorgonzola, I prepared it for dinner last night. Not a speck was left! Thanks for sharing this.

Nice shot, and I will most definitely steal your idea of slicing them thinly like that.

Maninas: food matters – they are gorgeous, aren’t they? I used long thin beetroots, so it was quite easy to slice them thinly..

Nora B – I do know your feelings towards beetroot indeed :)

Farmer de Ville – well, if you’ve got a good blue cheese, and a lovely roasted beetroot, then there’s not much more to wish for!

Christina – I quite agree!

Paula – give it a go then!!

VegeYum – simple recipes are often the best. Or at least I’m drawn to them usually..

Judy – you’re welcome – and thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed this! I’ll keep gorgonzola in mind next time..

Kevin - feel free to 'steal' that idea :)

Dagmar, Anne, Rebekka, Swirlingnotions – thank you!
