Chef Cola’s healthy, quick-to-prepare salad

One of her favourite recipes – and delicious to eat – is her healthy, quick-to-prepare salad.

“The rule when making salads is to work with the freshest ingredients as possible. The power ingredient that stands out in this salad is beetroot, as it adds a nice sweet balance to the dish. Beetroot is also rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C and an excellent source of folic acid, fibre, manganese and potassium, so it really is a wonderful ingredient to include in your diet.”

What You’ll Need:

  • ½ head of lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ onions, thinly sliced
  • ½ cucumber, julienned
  • 1 cup of beetroot, thinly sliced
  • ½tsp salt
  • ½tsp mixed herbs

How to Make:

  1. In a large bowl add the lettuce, carrot, tomatoes, onion and cucumber and toss to mix together.
  2. In a heated pan add a knob of butter and then gently fry the thinly sliced beetroot (about 10 mins), adding the salt and dried mixed herbs before setting aside to cool.
  3. Once cooled, add to the salad bowl and mix all ingredients together.
    Serve with dressing of your choice or enjoy as is.
