Pretty Pink Salad for Two

halved beetroot

Life is often better when it’s simple, food similarly.

This salad is simplicity personified. It requires no enhancements other than the basic flavours of life – salt, pepper, lemon and garlic. Refreshing, healthy and pretty  too – damn it, I’m aspiring to be a salad now?

Serves 2 as a side salad

2 medium beetroots – grated
2 medium carrots – grated
juice of one lemon
pinch salt

1 small tub of low fat plain yoghurt
half clove garlic, crushed

mix the carrot, beetroot, lemon and salt and put in the fridge to marinate for a couple of hours to allow the vegetables to soften slightly

mix the garlic with the yoghurt and serve in a separate bowl. Spoon yourself generous portions of both the salad and the yoghurt to make a light accompaniment for grilled chicken or grilled goats cheese on toast.
