Roasted Beet Salsa

Recipe from: Sharon123
Servings: 4

Oh goodness, this is a super way to eat beets! Beets, roasted, diced with ginger, jalapeño, garlic, mint and cilantro. Throw in a little lime juice and mmmmm..mmmmm!

4 medium beets
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons shallots, finely diced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon jalapeños, finely diced
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
¼ cup fresh mint, minced
¼ cup fresh cilantro, minced
2 teaspoons lime juice

To roast beets: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Trim the tops off the beets and drizzle with the olive oil. Season the beets with salt and pepper, wrap them in aluminum foil and roast until tender, about 40 to 50 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the beets.

While the beets are roasting, place the shallot, jalapeño, ginger, garlic, mint, cilantro, lime juice and 6 tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl and stir to combine. When the beets are done, carefully remove the foil. Let cool, and then peel the beets by slipping the skins off with your fingers. Dice the beets and add salsa mixture, stirring to combine. Taste for seasoning.

Great served with fish or eaten alone as a salad!
