Fiery beetroot salad

IMG_5066

Why buy a ready-made salad pot when this one tastes far better, can be whipped up in moments and you have the satisfaction of homemade food? Beetroot can certainly divide opinion – when I was in primary school I distinctly remember beetroot being served with everything (and I mean those cold vinegary slices) – sausages and beetroot anyone?! It took me a long while to come to like those earthy red roots after that chilling start!

But I’ve really come round to the earthy vegetables. Such a fine colour, great in salads, make beautiful soup. This one’s a salad dish that’s sweet but sharp and punchy,  versatile and very simple.

Fiery Beetroot Salad (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan)

  • 4 beetroots, cooked and cut into cubes
  • 3 spring onions (scallions), sliced
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp smokey chipotle Tabasco sauce, or other chilli sauce of choice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

– Mix together the vinegar, oil, Tabasco, sugar and salt
– Pour over the beetroot and spring onions
– Mix delicately so the spring onions don’t go completely red! Some redness is inevitable.
