#06 French Salad with Beetroot

The earthy flavour of the beetroots combines so well with greens and cheese! For a very traditional French salad use cooked beetroots, lamb's lettuce and blue cheese. For a more Mediterranea twist use feta cheese and toasted pine nuts.

2-3 cooked beetroots sliced

1 tbsp toasted sunflower seeds
juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

In a salad bowl toss the endive with the lemon juice. Add the greens and the sliced beetroots.
Add the feta crubles and sprinkle with the seeds.
