Check out this recipe for a great way to use Beetroot and Pear, both of which are in season now!
• • 3 ripe pears (or you could use apples), peeled, cored and cut into matchsticks
• 1 x lemon oil dressing see below recipe
• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 200g/7oz feta cheese
• a small bunch of fresh mint, smallest leaves picked
optional: a large handful of sunflower seeds
Dress the beetroot and pear matchsticks in a little of the lemon oil dressing and season with some salt and pepper. Taste to check that the flavours are balanced and lovely, and add a little more lemon juice to check the sweetness of the pears and beetroots if you need to.
Divide the salad between four plates or put it on a big platter, crumble over the creamy white feta, and sprinkle over the baby mint leaves and the sunflower seeds if you’re using them. Simple, but it’s a treat and a half.
