Beet and White Bean Salad

It seems a simple and banal combination - but very successful, and a little ennobled with prunes will be a tasty, filling, healthy and special salad. You can also buy the canned beans, to reduce the cooking time.


400 g
3 medium beets
Dried white beans
200 g
100 g
without seeds
Garlic cloves
2 pieces
or garlic powder - a teaspoonful
Sunflower oil
2 tbsp
Salt and pepper
0.5 tsp
to taste

Step by step


I boiled several beans, and for another meal - don't be afraid that you have so much for salad :)

If you don't have it canned, boil it at home - but I would recommend soaking it overnight first, it will boil much faster and better.


Boil in plenty of water (at least 3 times more than beans), you can add bay leaf, an onion and 2 tablespoons of oil - it will be tastier and more flavorful.


Beets are classically boiled in water.

Or more recently I discovered another method - wrap it in aluminum foil and put it in the oven at 200 degrees for an hour - it keeps its vitamins better. Then cool, clean and use in salad.


And now the simplest part, we combine the above ingredients.

Cut the beets into larger cubes.


Then add the chopped plums, as well as the beets.


Add the oil, crushed garlic (I put the powder), salt and pepper. Mix well and adjust to taste each of them.

The beans are added at the end, so that after many mixtures they do not color too much red (it is more beautiful to be in contrasting salad colors) and not to crush it too hard.


Add the beans and mix gently.


It can be served as a salad or as food as such - hot or cold.

Good appetite!
