I should be working, I turned on the computer with the intention of working. But am I? Errr no. Since turning the computer on I’ve checked my emails (well that was sort of working) but mostly I’ve making changes to my AFL dreamteam and now here I am composing a quick post about Beetroot Salad.
I like cooked beetroot salads but I also like them made with raw beetroot. Particularly finely shredded like this:
It took me a while to choose this picture (more procrastination) and I’m still not sure I chose the best one. I do like the texture of the trampoline the salad is sitting on though….
This salad is really simple – grated beetroot dressed in a vinaigrette with a bit of horseradish grated through it. I make my vinaigrette for beetroot with a one part acid – usually lemon juice, to 3 parts oil and a dash of dijon mustard thrown in for good measure. To this I added the horseradish, seasoned it and then dressed my beetroot.
Really quick, really enjoyable and good and crunchy.
