Such a burst of flavor! I too roasted my beets but otherwise did as directed. I did use less rosewater (one and a half tablespoons emptied my bottle) and found it sufficient. Served this on a combination of bibb lettuce and endive. Very pretty as well as delicious. Thanks, Jewelies!

This is a yummy salad, which goes really well with spicy food. I made it as directed in the recipe except that I roasted the beetroot, because I like the flavour better that way, and I only used half the amount of rosewater in the dressing. Thanks Jewelies!
