This recipe is inspired by the Argentines I play soccer with every weekend on the Lower East Side. Empanadas are a great snack, blending the holy trinity of savory, spice, and just a touch of sweetness. This recipe is from New American Table.

Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

Argentine Roasted Beet Salad

A few springs ago, I visited Argentina for a few months to take a little time off from my busy schedule and brush up on my Spanish. While in Argentina I fell in love with the culture, food, people, and wine. I went to a dozen Asados Argentinos (Argentine BBQs), ate tons of soft empanadas filled with beef, olives and hard boiled eggs, devoured the Alfajores filled with dulce de leche, couldn’t get enough of a lovely beet salad with avocado and goat cheese, and enjoyed having the chance to drink amazing Malbec with all of the yummy foods that I consumed on my trip. I love recreating the food that I had the pleasure to eat while in Argentina in my very own kitchen here in the States. In Argentina (and now at home), I serve this roasted beet salad  alongside hanger steak and a small glass of Malbec.
