NUTTY BEETROOT SALAD


oohhh this is also one more MAGNIFICENT CLICK for Gayathri from me

INGREDIENTS:----
Fruit vinegar ---- 1 tab sp
Beetroot cooked and greated --- 1 no.
Apple ---- 1 small or 1/2
Lemon juice ---- 1 tab sp
Pecans and walnuts ---- 4 tab sp to garnish
FOR DRESSING:-----
Yogurt --- 1 tab sp
Mayonnaise ---- 1 tab sp
Garlic --- 1 clove crushed and chopped
Parsley --- finely chopped 1 tab sp
If you like you can add fresh mixed salad leaves to this they will give more crunchy ness to the salad.



METHOD:-----
Sprinkle vinegar over the beetroot mix well and cover and leave it in the fridge for atleast 4 hours.
Core and slice the apples,place them in a dish and sprinkle lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
Remove the beetroot from the fridge and add dressing, apple and mix gently to coat with the salad dressing.
TO SERVE arrange handfull of salad leaves in a bowl or a plate and top with a large spoonfull of the apple and beet root mixture.
Now toast the pecans and wal nuts in a dry fry pan over a medium heat for 2 min. or till they become brown and sprinkle over beetroot and apple salad to garnish.
Serve with any bread or roti
I enjoyed this salad with 1 plain roti.
