beetroot salad

Ingredients:

  • Lettuce – 1 bunch
  • Beetroot – 2 no
  • Fruit cocktail – 1 box
  • Macaroni – 1 cup
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp
  • Vinegar – 2 tbsp
  • Brown sugar – 1 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Pepper – 1 tsp
  • Oregano – 1 tsp
  • Mixed herbs – 1 tsp
  • Chilli flakes – 1 tsp

Method:

Boil the macaroni and keep aside

 

  • Boil the beetroot; cut in thin slices; add it to the macaroni and mix well till the macaroni takes the colour of the beetroot
  • Put the full box of fruit cocktail with the juice in the macaroni and beetroot bowl
  • Cut some lettuce and add to the salad and keep a few for making the base of the dish, so that our salad looks colourful
  • In a cup, add the olive oil, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, pepper, oregano, mixed herbs and chilli flakes; mix it well and add it to the salad. (Why I use the cup and not directly put these ingredients in the bowl is because, the seasoning will mix well in the cup and coat the salad properly, rather than uneven flavouring when you add directly in the bowl)

 

Chill it in the fridge.
