Mad About Beets!

We in Australia are famous for beetroot on our hamburgers. No, it's not an urban myth but very true and delicious - if you haven't already, you should try it. I've recently discovered the fresh variety. I have been going to our local farmers market at EPIC very early on Saturday mornings and buying from the growers. This means I get local seasonal produce. Fresh beets have always eluded me. What to do with them? My darling friend Wil introduced me to this recipe and I finally put it to the test. I thought I would go and find a picture of a beet to include with the posting. I found the perfect one by Louise Lister and although she does do lovely things with food the picture wasn't royalty free! Clearly I'm never going to be a food stylist but here is my attempt at photographing my beet, fetta and Spanish onion salad. Not only did it look pretty, but it tasted great!
