Orange and Beetroot Salad

by | December 5, 2017

This little orange and beetroot salad is both zesty and earthy. If you want to bulk it up a little, add some chickpeas sautéd with turmeric, cumin, paprika and a pinch of salt. Delicious and hearty. Even the kids will enjoy this colorful salad with the fun beetroot strings and bright colors.


  • 1 small beetroot (spiraled/grated)
  • 1 orange (segmented)
  • Fresh salad leaves
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 green capsicum
  • 1/2 grated carrot
  • 1 tspn chia seeds/flaxseeds
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup parsley/coriander
  • Olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • *optional fermented veg



  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl & dress with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.
  • Top with a sprinkle of chia seeds.
  • Serve with avocado, fresh herbs (I’ve used coriander here) and some sauerkraut.
