Struggle to get your kids to eat beetroot? With this delicious salad, you’ll have them begging for more!

(Makes 6)

You’ll need: 

4 large beetroots; washed and scrubbed

2 onions

3 naartjies

Handful roasted walnuts

200 g feta cheese

Wild rocket

½ cup olive oil

2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Slice the beetroot thinly into rounds. Wrap the onions in foil and place in the coals to cook for about 45 min. Remove the foil, and push the cooked onion flesh out. Chop roughly. Grill the beetroot slices over medium-hot coals for about 30 sec per side, until just crispy, but without the raw taste. Cut the naartjies in half, and grill face down for a about a min. until just charred. Assemble each salad by placing a good amount of rocket on each plate, followed by the grilled beetroot. Crumble equal amounts of feta over each and top with the soft onions. Sprinkle with roasted walnuts, and finally place half a grilled naartjie on each plate. Combine the juice of the remaining 2 grilled naartjies with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season and serve with the salad
