Day 15 of Salad a Day
I love the contrasting colours in this salad. The dark green of the spinach, the bright red of the beet and the fresh orange of the mandarin. All of this combines to develop a taste in your mouth before you’ve even taken a bite. And after your first mouthful, you understand the combination. So much going on with just a few ingredients.
I used a spiralizer for the beetroot to get the noodle type effect. Spiralizers are great kitchen tools, but you can survive without one. It would be too hard to try to get the same effect using a peeler or a knife, so try for something different – either small cubes, or thin juliennes.
This is part of #saladaday – A fresh, new salad everyday for 30 days. After being inundated with requests to have all the salad recipes together, I’ve collated them all into an ebook, which is on sale here.
