Grated salad

A simple name for a simple salad but don’t let its simplicity fool you. It really is very tasty. Simply take three ingredients – beetroot (raw), carrot and apple – peel and grate into one bowl. I recommend wearing rubber gloves for the beetroot, unless you’re happy to have deep purple hands.

You can choose your own proportions depending on how earthy or sweet you want your salad, or what you have in the fridge to use up. I used two small bulbs of beetroot, one medium carrot and one medium apple.

To your grated mix add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a splash of olive oil and salt and pepper. You don’t want this salad swimming in liquid so add a little at a time, mix and taste until you are happy with it. I added some toasted mixed seeds which gives the salad a nice crunch. Some chopped mint and a few raisins would also be good additions. Both of those sadly are not favoured among my family.

Being stuck on Thameslink is sad any time but definitely worse when you’re hungry. Hope you get home very soon x

I love raw beetroot, or actually anything to do with beetroot (roasted is also so yummm). Looking forward to trying this recipe out, especially now I have a new food processor!

Made this salad tonight, yummy. It’s very very similar to the raw energy salad I make all the time. Raw energy salad:
250g beetroot grated; 350g Carrot grated; 1/2 cup mint chopped; 1/4 cup cranberries; 1/2 cup of mixed toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
Dressing: 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses; 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar; 30ml orange juice; 30ml cup olive oil; 1/2 tbsp honey; 1/4 tsp salt
