Beets grow well in certain parts of Greece, especially at the tail end of the growing season. As a result, recipes such as these are prepared throughout the country. This one, however, originates in the Greek islands.

Greek Island Style Beets (Panzaria Nisiotika) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 recipe ladolemono
  • 6 small, 2-inch beets
  • 1 cup chopped greens, such as spinach, beet greens, or arugula
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions to Make Greek Island Style Beets:

Prepare the ladolemono according to the recipe instructions and set aside.

Wash the beets and place in a pot of boiling water. Cook until they soften slightly. This should take about ten minutes. Remove the beets from the water and let them cool. Peel the skins off the beets and cut the beets into slices.

Place the beets in a bowl. Top with the greens and then the red onion. Drizzle with ladolemono and feta cheese just before serving.
