Beetroot and Carrot Salad with Toasted Sesame Seeds

This is good - the earthy tones of the beetroot go well with the sweetness of carrots and dried fruit and it's a riot of colour too as well as nutritious. Try replacing the raisins with apricots for a change - either unsulphured (dark brown and sweeter) or the orange variety! 

Did you know that sesame seeds are an excellent source of calcium? Tahini - sesame seed butter - is used in hummus but is also great on toast or in sauces.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 3 small beetroot (peeled and pre-cooked, or ready-to-eat shop brought), grated
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • Salt and pepper

Method: 

 1. Combine all the ingredients together and mix well. Serve with some fresh multi-seed bread and hummus, or as a side salad.
