    Tip

    The salad can be served just warm.  Or, if you've time, make it a few hours or even the day before.  Store in the fridge until you're ready to eat, it's delicious cold and leaving it helps the flavours combine beautifully.

  • “If you make the salad in advance it's even better - the flavours combine and the salad turns a lovely vibrant purple colour from the beetroot!”
