3 Baby red beets

3 Baby gold beets

3 Baby striped beets

1 Haloumi cheese

1/2 cup Yogurt, greek

1 tsp Mint, dried

2 tsp Lemon juice

1 cup EVOO

1/2 cup Sherry Vinegar

Sea salt to taste                     


1) Trim the beets of their leaves and stems. Place each type of beet in a separate foil packet with 1 tablespoon of EVOO, 1 teaspoon of sherry vinegar, and some salt. Place the three packets on a roasting pan and roast at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender.

2) Remove beets from oven and allow to cool. Using a dish towel, rub the beets to remove the skin and discard the skin. Cut the beets in halves and marinate in a quarter cup of EVOO and 2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar.

3) Cut the haloumi into cubes and fry in a pan with oil until golden. Mix the yogurt with the lemon juice, dried mint, salt, and a quarter cup of EVOO.

4) To dress, place the marinated beets in a bowl, and garnish with the yogurt dressing and fried haloumi.
