Beetroot, apple, rocket and seed salad

A little spin on a grated beetroot and feta salad I’ve often seen around – this one is dairy free, of course, and very bit as delicious!


2 large beetroot, washed and unpeeled

1 large fuji apple

50g rocket (or arugula)

4 Tbsp sunflower seeds


40mL Extra Virgin Olive Oil

60mL balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp maple syrup


IMG_1797Grate beetroot into a large bowl. Core and finely slice the apple then add to the bowl of beetroot along with the rocket.

Lightly toast the sunflower seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes just until they brown. Cool a little then add to the beetroot mix.

Mix the dressing ingredients in a shaker (or whisk in a jug). Toss through the salad just prior to serving, or only dress the amount you’re going to eat, as the salad doesn’t keep well once dressed.
