Ingredients
  • Beetroot: 1½ (Steamed, peeled and diced into cubes)
  • Baby Spinach Leaves: 15 (well washed and drained)
  • Poppy seeds or sesame seeds: 3 tbsp (Well roasted and crushed)
  • Walnuts: 5 (slightly roasted/broken into pieces)

Method

  • Keep submerged in water for sometime (as whole, do not cut yet).
  • Wash with scrubber so that all dirt is removed well.

  • Once steamed, take the skin out. The skin will slip off most cooperatively.

  • Ensure your beets are properly cooled, before adding in all the other ingredients.
  • Chop the beets into chunky pieces.
  • Reserve the poppy seeds, lemon and honey for the end, as a garnish on top.
  • The leaves of baby spinach can be gently torn into halves, if too big, use their tender stalks.
  • Do not discard beetroot leaves if you are lucky to get them. They are a great addition to the salad.
  • You can also chop them finely, with the torn spinach leaves.
  • Lay the leaves in a serving dish, prepare them as a bed for your beets. Add beetroot.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients along with seeds and drizzle on top.
