A salad should never be a disappointment. Especially if it’s the main event of a summer meal. This salad has so many healthy ingredients in it and is perfect for giving you an energy boost.I love beetroot’s earthy, sweet jucy crunch and it is so good for you. Pairing it here with the peppery watercress, sprouting seeds and walnuts makes a satisfying and healthy quick salad. If you’re not a fan of beetroot, try this dish as the flavour is not too pronounced.The sharp and nutty dressing brings the flavours together and elevates this amazingly healthy dish to a higher level. You can find raspberry vinegar in most supermarkets, as well as walnut oil. Serve with wholemeal sourdough bread.
