Beet and Carrot Salad with Feta

Beet and Carrot Salad with Feta

Red beets and carrots form a simple warm salad, perfect for a colorful side dish or light meal. We top it with crumbled feta and tangy, nutty za’atar spice that’s signature to Middle Eastern cooking.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
