Summer Fruit and Beetroot Salad

Beetroot has unfortunately been traditionally misused by being put into a brining liquid with heaps of sugar and salt. This is a beautiful vegetable that is easy to cook and one of the most delicious root vegetables. It’s loaded with fibre and antioxidants. It’s also high in nitrates which are converted into nitric oxide in your blood and relaxes blood vessels. Roasted beetroot will not disappoint, a guaranteed favourite that will be added to your list of favourite dishes. This humble vegetable is very well socialized and pairs well with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Especially summer fruits. Bonus feature: it always looks beautiful on a plate.
