I made this dish for lunch the other day when I needed something quick and easy. If you prepare the beans and beetroot in advance the salad only takes about 5minutes to put together and it tastes great.
1 large Beetroot, roasted whole and chilled
2 cups chilled cooked white beans (I use cannellini)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2Tbs lemon juice
2Tbs olive oil
2Tbs chopped fresh mint leaves
1tsp salt (less if using drained canned beans)
Slice beetroot and cut into bite-size pieces
add all ingredients into mixing bowl and mix through.
Allow to sit in refrigerator for about two hours (this is optional, it just enriches the flavour)
