Lemon Cumin Beet Salad 

This is another salad that I made for our potluck lunch 2 weeks ago.

Raizel is still in love with cumin, so I thought I would experiment with this.


Beets, cooked and sliced

Onion, sliced thinly. 

Alternative: scallions, fresh mint or cilantro 


1/2 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons oil

2 teaspoons paprika 

2 teaspoons cumin

Salt and pepper to taste. I think I added 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper 


Place beets and onions in bowl. 

Whisk together lemon juice, oil, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and pour over vegetables. Garnish as desired with fresh herbs.

Everyone loved it and there was barely any leftover.  A good sign.


Bon appetite!

      They are very common in Eastern European cooking. I love their color and traditionally root vegetables were the only vegetables available during the wintertime.

    I adore beets. The addition of cumin is a lovely idea – I’ll give it a whirl!

      It is surprisingly good. Raizel, however, seems to like EVERYTHING with cumin these days. She has very sophisticated taste!
