Beetroot Relish

Rating: 4 stars 11
This beetroot relish is delicious, especially when served with lamb. The texture can be adjusted to your own liking, and I suggest it be somewhat chunky to give a contrast to the smoothness of the lamb. This recipe was in a book of notes from my grandmother, and tastes amazing.
