Carrot and Beet salad

Posted on: November 7th, 2011 by admin 4 Comments

This is a really simple fresh salad.  It’s wonderful to make as an accompaniment for many dishes and is a beauty to serve because the combination of beets and carrots makes an amazingly pink salad!

This serves 2-3

  • 3 carrots, coarsely grated
  • 2 beetroot, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1 orange, juice and grated zest
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed to a paste
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp chopped coriander (optional)

First lightly toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat for just a few minutes, stirring so they don’t burn.  Take them off when they turn slightly brown.

Mix the grated carrot and beetroot together in a large bowl.  Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Check the seasoning, adding more salt, pepper, honey or orange juice as you prefer.
