Beetroot Salad

Steps

  • Grate/shred the carrots, cabbage and beetroot and place in a large bowl. Add the drained chickpeas.

  • In a small bowl mix the juice from the orange, olive oil, cayenne pepper (depending how spicy you want it) and salt.

  • Drizzle over the salad, and mix.

  • Finely chop the coriander and mix into the salad too, leaving some to garnish on top.

  • Serve straight away or place in an air tight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

  • Notes-
    If you are making this ahead of time/serving for guests add the chickpeas, nuts and apricots just before serving or they will turn purple from the beetroot!
