Beetroot Salad - Salatat Shamandar

Beets are a delicacy in Jordan and they are expensive.

We use them in an appetizer called left, which is pickled white turnips in salt. I do not know why, but Arabs love salt.

Here is a very simple recipe for beet salad, done the Arab way.  

Beetroot Salad


•1/2 kilo beets, cooked

•3 medium onions cut into rings

•1/3 cup to 1/2 cup parsley, chopped

•1/2 cup white vinegar

•1/4 cup of cold pressed olive oil

•1 teaspoon salt


1.Place the rings of onions in a large bowl and add in the salt and the vinegar.

2.Peel the beets and then slice them. Make sure you are wearing plastic gloves at the time as they will stain your hands.

3.Place the beets in the bowl with the onions. Add in the parsley and stir.

4.Place the salad on a large serving plate and sprinkle with the oil.
