Beetroot, Orange and Almond Salad
Peel the orange by cutting off the top and bottom with a sharp knife then work your way around, cutting off the skin. There may be some juicy flesh still on the skin. Don’t waste it -squeeze the juice into a glass and add to the dressing.
Slice the orange and the beetroot(cooked) and put them into a bowl.
Lightly toast the almonds in a dry pan and add to the bowl.
Mix all of the dressing ingredients with the orange juice, then dress the salad. Top with a few mint leaves.
The name of this recipe is pretty much the ingredients list, but there is a lovely little trick in the dressing. I really like beetroot as a food, and considering I am a kettlebell guy the obvious Russian link is always worth a nod. Beetroot is great for you, but some people don’t find it very palatable – pairing beetroot with fruit can really open up the door to liking it.
