A salad should never be a disappointment. Especially if it’s the main event of a summer meal. This salad has so many healthy ingredients in it and is perfect for giving you an energy boost.
I love beetroot’s earthy, sweet jucy crunch and it is so good for you. Pairing it here with the peppery watercress, sprouting seeds and walnuts makes a satisfying and healthy quick salad. If you’re not a fan of beetroot, try this dish as the flavour is not too pronounced.
The sharp and nutty dressing brings the flavours together and elevates this amazingly healthy dish to a higher level. You can find raspberry vinegar in most supermarkets, as well as walnut oil. Serve with wholemeal sourdough bread.
