Cooking with McCain- sweet beet salad

I absolutely love beetroot. From fresh to pickled, so it came as no suprise that McCain’s new diced beetroot would be a firm favourite for me.

My family however, are not fans of beetroot at all.

So, being a creative mom I decided to sweeten things up with this sweet beet salad.

To make your own :


  • McCain diced beetroot
  • Mint leaves
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar


  • Boil the McCain’s beetroot straight from the freezer. I used a full packet for 5 of us.
  • Once boiled, strain your beetroot and place in a salad bowl.
  • Mix 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder with 3 tablespoons of white sugar and sprinkle generously over the beetroot.
  • Stir in and add mint leaves.

I served this salad warm but you could also serve it chilled.
