Beetroot Salata

This beetroot salad from Sudan is one of the simple salads with satisfying flavors that you will want to make it often. Plus, it is easy to make. This is a vegan salad and would be a great addition to the menu when inviting vegan guests.

The salad has a lovely color and colored foods give more nutrition. The bite from fresh shredded veggies and the lemon juice makes it divine. Easy to make and packed with nutrition and flavor, yes, then it should be the choice for everyone to include in this salad in meal than having the same packaged salad kits. This veggies can be prepped ahead and stored in fridge. Just add the lettuce and dressing just before serving when you are serving this for parties. I can assure that with its beautiful color and flavor of this salad, everyone would ask for the recipe. I Followed Mark Tanner's recipe.

I am sharing this recipe for the #SummerGamesWeek. This recipe is from Sudan. We enjoyed Sudan food when we traveled virtually in our #eattheworldchallenge group. This salad when served with Sudanese Tamia (Sudanese Falafel) makes a perfect protein rich meal. The vegetarian foods from Sudan were more similar to our traditional meals but a mild milder. We enjoyed the Addas too! We always loved to watch the Olympic Games and talk about it next day in the school. We always talk about the countries that rank high or which country bagged most of the medals. Since Sudan is also a participating country, I wanted to share this recipe. Did you know that Sudan first participated in Olympics in the year 1960? Ismail Ahmed Ismail came second in the men's 800 m in 2008 and he was the first Sudanese athlete to win an Olympic medal.
