Beetroots and orange salad

Betroot and orange 22

Winter is long and the grey colour of the sky is playing with my mood…. So I needed to eat some colourful dish in order to cheer me up. I decided to build the dish around the beetroots are they are pretty common in winter, then I decided to add some orange. I think I saw something similar in one of the cooking book that I read a couple of months ago. The mix of colour and texture of this starter is perfect for putting joy at the table.

This plate can be served as a starter or for a light for a lunch.

How to make beetroots and orange salad?

  • Start by cooking the beetroots, steamed them unpeeled for 45 minutes

! If you are using cooked beetroots, please discard this first step

  • Peel the orange and slice it
  • When the beetroots are cold, remove the skin and slice them into thin slices
  • Wash carefully the lettuce
  • Then prepare the plate, with layers of salad, then pieces of orange, and beetroots

! For roasting the seeds, put them in a pan without oil and heat them over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Check them regularly as it can burn really quickly
