Method

Blitz dressing ingredients together and set aside. Take a baking tray and place the rock salt over it. Next place beets over salt and cover with foil. Place into a moderate oven and bake for 1 ½ hrs or until tender. Remove and cool down. Once cool, peel skin from beetroots, cut into quarters and place into a bowl.
