Beetroot with red apple & watercress/cos lettuce Salad. Yum.

You are wondering how this will work?

It is very easy and simple to make and yes! The recipe will feed a family of four and if you have a larger family – just add more ingredients. Too easy people!!!

Now, this is what you will need. The recipe is easy and takes no time at all. Approximately 5-10 minutes depending on how you cut the fruits and how you like to prepare.

Your main Ingredients are:

Beetroot with red apple & watercress/cos lettuce salad
  • 1 small lemon
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bag of rocket, washed
  • a bunch of watercress/cos lettuce
  • optional: a small handful of pea shoots
  • 2 red apples, quartered, cored and finely sliced
  • 2 small red beetroot and 2 small candy beetroot (or use all red if you can’t find candy), scrubbed (not peeled) and very finely sliced (if you have leaves, reserve them)
  • a small bunch of fresh marjoram, leaves picked – if not just substitute for something you like!

Okay, you have your apron on, your chopping board ready and your Ingredients . Lets getting racking in the kitchen with these instructions:

Your Beetroot with red apple, watercress/cos lettuce salad will serve four people.

Did you know that:  Beetroot can be eaten raw but it needs to be very finely sliced – a mandolin is ideal.

A) Squeeze the lemon juice into a clean jam jar. Add three times the amount of extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper then screw the lid on and shake to emulsify.

B) Add the rocket, watercress/cos lettuce, pea shoots, apples, beetroot and beetroot leaves, if you have them to a large bowl. Drizzle over enough dressing to completely coat the ingredients, add the marjoram, toss again and serve.

TIP: A quick one. Make sure you have spare bowls to keep your ingredients in as it does make more space on your kitchen bench and saves a lot of messy work as well. =)

Now, your homemade recipe is ready to serve as a side meal, a snack or even a main meal. You can add anything you like to turn this into a whooper of  meal. Good luck and Get Creative. All credits go to Jamie Oliver, inspired cooking and recipe. Not my recipe.
