Beets are undisputedly a superfood, packed with essential nutrients and powerful antioxidants – and they’re delicious, too. Pantzarosalata, a Greek word for a vibrant beet salad with a herby yoghurt sauce, is a staple at Soho House Mumbai and part of our newly launched Mediterranean menu curated by chef Gautam Mehta. 

The garlic and mint yoghurt and dressing with pomegranate molasses and seeds accompany the earthy yet sweet beetroot flavour, creating a balanced dish that’s ideal for lunch and dinner alike. Head to the House to try this summer favourite, or check out the recipe below to try your hand at making it at home.
