For the salad dressing
- Oil. My personal favorite for this recipe is extra virgin olive oil. But you can use any other oil of your choice.
- Balsamic vinegar. Check the ingredients of the Balsamic vinegar to make sure it is compliant with your diet restrictions. You can also use apple cider vinegar.
- Chopped parsley. beetroot and parsley pair very well. The best way to go here is to use fresh parsley. If you don't have any, you can use frozen parsley or skip it completely.
- Fleur de sel. If you don't know what fleur de sel is, you can read my complete guide to fleur de sel. If you don't have any fleur de sel, you can use Maldon sea salt or regular sea salt.

I recommend using a mandolin slicer to make this beetroot carpaccio.
👩🏻🍳Tips to prepare the beetroot
- Peel the raw beetroot thoroughly. Then rinse it under cold water to make sure to remove all the dirt.
- Using a mandolin slicer will make it easier and quicker to very thinly slice your raw beetroot. But be extremely careful not to hurt your fingers while using it. If you don't have a slicer, you can use a sharp knife and a cutting board. It will just be trickier and will take more time. But it is doable.
