Beetroot, Broccoli & Silverbeet Salad + Creamy Tahini Ginger Dressing
There's really nothing quite like beetroot is there? It's so fresh and vibrantly coloured. I had this sudden craving for some the other day, so I went and bought a whole bunch of them from the store and grated a couple up. (I love having a dish of ready-grated beets in the fridge, drizzled with apple cider vinegar, so that it's ready to add to your meal whenever you want it. [And you it saves on excess purple staining of hands]).
The mound I had grated this time was exceedingly large though, so I decided to combine it with some greens for a nourishing, power snack to keep on hand.
This salad is juicy from the beets, crunchy from the broccoli, and is both creamy and zingy from the tahini-acv dressing. I added some silverbeet too, but you could use any sort of dark leafy greens you prefer (e.g. kale, spinach, collards etc).
This dish is packed with calcium, protein, fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, magnesium, iron and the list of vitamins and minerals goes on.. With the apple cider vinegar and ginger, it's also great for your gut health (for happy little bacteria!)
Aside from these benefits though, it also just tastes delicious!
