Salata od cvekle, tikve i ovcijeg sira

Potrebno:
3 - 4 cvekle (ovisno o velicini)
1/2 manje tikve (one fine narandzaste u sredini)
150 gr rokule
po ukusu so, origano
1 ceno bijelog luka
malo maslinovog ulja
Preljev:
60 gr mekanog kozijeg/ovcijeg sira (feta)
2 kasike maslinovog ulja, djevicansko
1 kasika limunovog soka
1 malo ceno bijelog luka, protisnutog
2 kasike vode
malo crnog bibera, svjeze mljevenog
Priprema :
Operite cvekle, odrezite im donje i gornje krajeve i umotajte u AL-foliju. Ubacite u pecnicu na oko 30-45 min (200*C), u ovisnosti o velicini.
Ogulite tikvu, isijecite je na podjednake komade, posolite i prelijte uljem u koje ste protisnuli ceno bijelog luka. Dodajte malo listica origana, te i to ispecite u tepsiji (20-ak minuta).
Dok se povce hladi pripremite rokulu – operite i ocijedite, rasporedite po vecoj plitkoj posudi.
Preljev cete napraviti tako da sve sastojke pomijesate i izmiksate sa ‘Stab” mikserom.
Nakon sto se cvekla prohladila, ogulite je (rukavice!) i isijecite na manje reznjeve. Rasporedite je preko rokule naizmjenicno sa komadima tikve.
Pospite preljev i uzivajte.
