I'm not cooking much recently... with such a HUGE bump (39 weeks!) on me I can hardly walk, let alone stand for some time in front of a stove... So, my Hubby happy in the kitchen - at last I'm not interrupting ;) But today I was able to help him a little and made this lovely salad. Had it marked in one of my cookbooks for some time now and having all the ingredients I just finally made it. Didn't know if it will be nice but it was delicious! It will be great accompaniment to grilled meats and fish or alone as a starter. The recipe comes from "Fat free, low fat cooking" by Anne Sheasby.
How to make it...
- 3 medium cooked beetroots (cooked, pealed and diced)
- 3 heads chicory (sliced)
- 2 large oranges (segments cut out, juice added to the salad)
- 4 tablespoons plain yogurt
- 4 teaspoons mustard
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- salt, pepper, caster sugar
Mix together diced beetroot, chicory and orange segments. In a separate bowl prepare the dressing - mix yogurt, mustard and season to taste. Spoon the dressing over the salad and mix well together. Done! Couldn't be simpler.
P.S. You can buy already cooked and pealed beetroots which will make your life much simpler.
