Beetroot, Carrot and Goat’s Cheese Salad (4)

I grew up eating beetroot from my parent’s allotment, always cooked in a pressure cooker, and freshly cooked beetroot remains one of my favourite vegetables. My friend Angela pointed me to this recipe from Waitrose.com and as I already had most of the ingredients I decided to cook it the same day.Slight tweak when i got to my local green grocer’s and saw they had bunches of heritage beetroot. Delicious and refreshing especially for scorching days like this….carrot, beetroot and orange are such a classic combination.

Green Sauce (3/4 cup)

I make this Salsa Verde to go with Courgette Frittata but it also goes well with grilled or steamed vegetables or on fresh or toasted bread. Vary the herbs according to what is in season, and adjust the tartness and flavourings to complement the dish you are serving it with. It is from ” The Green’s Cook Book” by Deborah Madison and Edward Espe Brown.
