When I’m craving something that’s healthy and light to satisfy my taste buds, sometimes I find that a mundane salad doesn’t cut it. Keeping things interesting in the kitchen is the key to sticking to a healthy diet and this is the kind of salad that will help you do just that. This is another good side to serve with steamed fish – sea bass or bream are perfect. Or, to keep it plant-based and colourful, serve it with my Thai Coconut Noodle Bowl with Pak Choi and Mushrooms. It is an absolutely stunning salad in both appearance and flavour!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 large beetroots, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 celeriac, trimmed and cut into chunks
large handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
large handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
5 figs, quartered
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the lime dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 lime, juiced and zested
3cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Method

  1. Fill a large saucepan with about 2cm water and heat over a medium heat. Add the beetroot and cook for about 20 minutes. Drain and put in a large bowl.
  2. Add another 2cm water to the empty pan and heat over a medium heat. Add the celeriac and cook for about 15 minutes. Drain and leave to cool in a separate bowl.
  3. Once the beetroot and celeriac have cooled, add the parsley, coriander and figs to the large bowl, along with the celeriac.
  4. Whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle over the beetroot and celeriac salad and season with salt and pepper before serving.

Note

  • Beetroot is fantastic for increasing your stamina and helping your muscles work harder for longer.
