RECIPE: BEETROOT CARPACCIO

This salad is colorful, rich in flavor and so easy to make.

 

Ingredients

Serves 4

Beetroot (sliced)   100 g

Celeriac (sliced) 100 g

Rocket salad 100 g

Baby spinach 100 g

Parmesan cheese (shaved) 60 g

Walnuts (toasted) 30 g

Goat cheese (fresh) 80 g

Orange zest (grated) 1

Fresh parsley (chopped) 30 g

 

For the Lemon & Balsamic vinegar dressing:

Whisk 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and pepper to taste. Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup olive oil.

 

Method

Step 1: Wash, drain and patted dry spinach leaves and rocket salad, set aside.

Step 1: Peel the beetroot, and with the help of a Mandoline slice it very thinly, watch your fingers!

Place it on a plate and season it with the dressing, refrigerate for 4 hrs.

Step 3: Peel Celeriac and slice it as you did with the beetroot.

Step 4: Place the celeriac on a plate and season it with the dressing using half, refrigerate for 4 hours to allow the flavours to be absorbed.

Step 5: Toss the rest of the ingredients in a bowl with as much dressing as required. Cover a plate with the thinly sliced Beetroot and Cereriac so that you cannot see the plate underneath. Place the salad heaped in the centre so you can see a border of the Beet and Celeriac. Serve immediately.
