Beetroot and Orange Salad

Beetroot and Orange SaladThis Beetroot and Orange Salad is so easy it is almost not even worth posting about. Though I will anyway because it is really tasty and healthy. It’s lovely on the day you make it but the flavours develop after a night in the fridge so it’s even better the next day. It would be lovely as a side dish or a part of a mezze dinner but I like it best by the bowlful for breakfast. You can go and cook and cool the beetroot if you’d like if you happen to have nice fresh beetroot though I just bought it cooked and vac-packed which means, for me, there was no cooking at all, just chopping and assembling.

This recipe is such a great on to have for those times you need to lay off the calories. Just throw it together in big batches and eat it for the next few days.
