Beetroot And Mascarpone Salad Recipe: Beet Salad With Mascarpone

By: Pooja Gupta

Beetroot and mascarpone salad is a beautiful salad recipe with a heap of textures and tasty flavours together. This recipe dresses up a potentially mundane vegetable, which no one likes to eat, by using the beetroot in two ways: raw and cooked.

It also includes a simple sauce that brings out the flavour of the beets without overpowering it. The flavour of the orange pulp all the more enhances the flavours of the beetroot.
