Yum, I have discovered raw beetroot!
I haven't really eaten much raw beetroot before, until lately. Since I have been buying my vegies at the Vegie Barn I have bought a few little fresh beetroots. I love it! Made up a Carrot & Beetroot salad and it was delish. (DH wasn't so sure!)
toss together :
1 small raw beetroot (peeled & grated)
2 carrots (grated)
2 tablespoons sultanas
dash of curry powder
dash of Fat free French Dressing with herbs. (1 point for the whole salad - 2 very large serves)
Changing the subject from beetroot, I also tossed together these for another yummy salad:
10 cherry tomatoes (halved)
6 Kalamata olives (chopped)
1/2 a small green capsicum (sliced)
1 small purple onion (sliced)
1/2 a teaspoon sugar
salt & pepper to taste
dash of vinegar
2 Laughing Cow Lite cheese portions (sliced) (2 points for the whole salad - 2 large serves)
We are still having so many barbecues that I need to think of lots of different salads. It is nice to have such a warm summer. All too soon we will be searching for our favourite soup recipes, so we need to make the most of the salad weather now.
Hope you all have a GREAT weekend.
