Raw beetroot salad with feta and Greek-style yogurt

Raw beetroot salad with feta and Greek-style yogurt

A refreshing salad with a creamy sauce which is perfect for lunch or dinner. Why not try it for your next barbecue too?

  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 150g Tims Dairy Greek Style Natural Yogurt
  • 200g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • Sea salt and coarse black pepper
  • 500g raw beetroot, washed & peeled

What you do:

  1. Put the feta and yogurt in a food processor and whizz until you have a smooth sauce. Scoop out into a large bowl. Add the chopped spring onions, cumin and seasoning and mix well.
  2. Wash the processor bowl and then fit the julienne disc or if not, the grater disc. When all the beetroot is grated, turn it into the large bowl and toss so everything is mixed well together.

Cook's tip:

'I always make this recipe in the food processor as it is much easier. The perfect accompaniment for grilled lamb chops,' says Theodore Kyriakou.
