Grilled Beet Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Time Investment: 10 Minutes Beginning to End

Ingredients (Dressing)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Tahini
  • 1/2 Red Chili (optional if you don’t want it spicy!)
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons Hot Water
  • Kosher Salt
Directions (Dressing)
  • Add all to a food processor or blender and pulse/blend until smooth
Ingredients (Salad)
  • 3-6 Beets (Red or golden)
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Lettuce of preference (I used chopped beet greens)
  • Green Onions (I used fresh garlic scapes instead because they’re in season and I put them on literally everything right now!)
  • Brush beets with olive oil & sprinkle with kosher salt
  • Grill 3 minutes per side until fork tender
  • Serve the grilled beets over top of the greens/lettuce and drizzle with lemon dressing

We served this with steak and it was a perfect side dish, especially with fresh beets from the farmer’s market.
