How to Make Grilled Beets with Moroccan Dressing


  1. Prepare a charcoal fire or light a gas grill.
  2. Brush the beets with olive oil and place over medium-low coals. Cook slowly until they can be easily pierced with a fork, an hour to an hour and a half.
  3. Remove from heat, peel, then cut into thick slices.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the garlic, onion, tomato, cilantro, cumin, curry powder, vinegar (or lemon), and olive oil. Toss with the beets. Taste for seasoning.
  5. Serve warm or room temperature.
  6. NOTE: Canned beets can be substituted. If unsliced, they can be place a few minutes on the grill to pick up some smoky flavor.
