Latvian Beetroot Salad

Latvian Beetroot Salad


  •  4 beetroot (small apple-sized) 
  • Salt Pepper 
  • Olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons double cream 
  • 4 large sweet and sour gherkins (chopped into small cubes)


  1. Place the beetroot on tin foil (large enough to wrap them.)
  2. Drizzle over a few drops of olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper.
  3. Once the beetroots are wrapped place them on a tray and bake for about 2 hours (170-180 degrees).
  4. When cooked leave to cool completely, peel them and cut into small cubes.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients and taste for seasoning.
  6. The salad is delicious on its own but very nice with cold chicken, goats cheese, cold and oily fish.
