Cook or bake beet yourself
Although you can find pre-cooked beet in supermarkets, it’s best to buy the vegetable raw and cook it yourself for the salad, as it tastes best that way. Cook beet unpeeled, let it cool and peel it only afterwards. Alternatively, you can bake the vegetables in the oven. Place it, even unpeeled, in a heat-resistant container with a lid or wrap it in aluminum foil and bake it in the oven until the vegetables are cooked. In this way, the beet develops more flavor and retains all its nutrients.
With sour cream or mayonnaise – also vegan
The beet salad can be made either with mayonnaise, sour cream or natural yogurt. A mixture of these is also suitable for the recipe. If you want the beet salad to be vegan, use a vegan mayonnaise without egg, which you can also make yourself. Alternatively, you can make the salad with vegan sour cream or with soy yogurt.
