Beet Salad in Grand Marnier


For 4 people

  • 24 ounce(s) beets
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 1 large lemon, juice of
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) sweet paprika
  • 3 1/2 tablespoon(s) parsley
  • 1/3 teaspoon(s) water
  • 1/10 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 ounce(s) Grand Marnier


Trim the long root tip off the beets, leaving about 1/2 inch of stem on the tops. Scrub the beets rather well taking care not to damage the skin. Place the cleaned beets into a large heavy saucepan filled with water and bring to a boil. Cook until the beets are cooked tender. This can vary from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of your beets. When the beets are cooked, pour out the boiling water and run the beets under cool running water. Reduce the temperature of the beets to a point where they can be handled. The skins should be fairly loose. Peel and trim the beets. Dice into bite sized cubes about 1/2 - 3/4 inches. Mix together all remaining ingredients and pour over the slightly warm beets. Toss and place in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour.
