Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad

Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad is delicious! It is also quick to put together, is small-batch sized for smaller families, and goes great with just about everything! Beets are available now, so what are you waiting for? Try Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad with different colored beets, they are all good for you! 

As I continue to explore vintage recipes and some of the old ways that were common many years ago, one thing has become very clear. Foods were grown at home, cooked at home, and eaten at home. All three of which are still of great value. 

But in addition to this, I have also observed that most of the recipes that were family favorites handed down and looked forward to being enjoyed often, were usually simply prepared. It only makes sense as it does take a lot of time to grow, care for and preserve food from the garden and family orchard. With the investment in growing food, simple preparation methods were developed, used, and enjoyed. 

Due to time constraints, those simple preparation methods came to be. Meals were served, enjoyed and all were nourished. Today many of us do not grow our own food, but time still tends to be in short supply. Each day is new, but each day only holds 24 hours for each of us. Which is one reason I have begun to go back and relearn some cooking lessons, from those old ways

Most simply prepared foods were the result of matching compatible flavors, but more importantly using quality ingredients. If you have brightly flavored vinegar, a fresh beet or two, and a bit of salty creamy Feta, together those elements will make a fine impromptu salad, like this Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad

Because not every recipe needs to be time-consuming, I hope you give this one a try...I find it easiest to cook up a few beets in the Instant Pot. It is quick, and they keep well in the refrigerator for quick recipes like this one.  

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • beets
  • balsamic vinegar
  • Feta Cheese
You will also need the following:
  • Instant Pot or Medium-sized pan with lid
  • cutting board
  • small serving bowl
  • small kitchen knife
Now we are ready to begin!

Easy to prepare, Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad, vibrant and delicious!

Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad
by the seat of my pants!

1 large or 2 or 3 medium beets, cooked peeled and diced 
2 T Balsamic vinegar - or any light naturally sweet vinegar
3 to 4 T crumbled Feta

Cook the beets using your preferred method. Let cool, then peel and dice. 

Place the diced beets into a small bowl, drizzle with Balsamic vinegar, toss lightly, and sprinkle with the Feta cheese, and that is it!

Storage options for Simple 3 Ingredient Beet Salad. This salad may be kept in the refrigerator tightly covered for up to three days. I do not recommend freezing this dish.

  1. Beets are so yummy. The combo with the feta sounds really good.

    1. I hope you give it a try, this is one super easy recipe, and a delicious way to enjoy beets. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. i have to admit i buy beetroots cooked already, and sealed in a vacuum pack. soooo much easier than cooking them myself:-) They are delish with fetta, aren't they?

    1. Yes! Beets and feta are a match made in heaven, we like to vary the vinegar as well. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

  3. The feta and the beets sound like a delicious combination .I'm always on the lookout for good salad recipes.

    1. It is, the salty Feta compliments the rich beet flavor, feel free to experiment with some of the new fruit infused vinegars available now. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I've only tried beets once many years ago and didn't like them at all. Same with feta, but yesterday I ordered a salad that had feta on it and I didn't hate it, so I may give beets another try.

    1. I hope you do! One of the great pleasures is rediscovering the taste of food as you try it once again. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. We have been playing around with beets over the last few months. This looks like a delicious way to eat them.

    1. I also like how easy it is! When I cook beets I will cook enough for a couple of uses, this salad often is one of them.

  6. I love beets right out of the can, only seem to use them when I make pickled eggs though. And feta is my fav cheese. Going to have to try this combo together! Thanks so much for linking up with me at the Unlimited Monthly Link Party 22. Shared!

    1. Thank you Dee! I appreciate sharing with Grammy's Grid unlimited monthly party! Have a wonderful week ahead.
