Roasted Beet Salad with Mint
2 lbs (about 6 medium) roasted beets, with or without skins
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt (or more to taste)
1/4 cup fresh chopped mint
Chop roasted beets into bite-sized pieces and place them in a salad bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, sugar, cumin and salt.
Pour dressing over the beets, then add 3 tbsp minced mint. Toss salad gently until beets are coated in the dressing and mint.
Sprinkle the last tablespoon of mint over the top of the salad. Serve. This salad can be made ahead, but the mint must be added right before serving, otherwise the beet juices will turn the mint red.
