Beetroot & feta salad

Raw beetroot is so good! It's juicy, it's crunchy, it's earthy but sweet - and best of all, it's healthy and delicious. The colour is amazing, but be careful, beetroot juice stains hands and clothing!

Keyword: beetroot

Ingredients

  • 5 small beetroots
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • handful of chopped pea shoots

  • 8 walnuts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 80 g feta
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Scrub the beetroot, then coarsely grate it. *Hint:* The stains of beetroot juice are hard to wash off skin and wooden chopping boards. Wear gloves and grate it into a large plastic container.

  • Toast the sunflower seeds and walnuts without oil in a frying pan until golden and aromatic. Let them cool down a bit before adding them to the beetroot.

  • Crumble the feta over the salad. Serve as a main or side.
  • Bon Appetit!
