Beetroot and Gin Salmon Salad with a Mixed Beans, Feta Cheese and a Dill and Horseradish Dressing

Its official, beetroot makes everything beautiful! Now I’m not the biggest fan of overpowering beetroot flavour, but a subtle hint of it can really boost your meal, and something that bright and vibrant as this has to taste good right!? Considering that I would always discard beetroot in a salad, I love it in chocolate cake, houmous and now salmon – so in my eyes, it officially rocks!

  1. I’ve got to try this! I’m not a huge salmon fan because it’s such a rich fish, although I love smoked salmon. I think the gin will cut the richness!

  2. I love and adore beetroot. I think that language might be too strong for a vegetable, but it’s true. I could eat it all day in any form. With all the other delicious ingredients here this dish looks absolutely incredible! Yum 🙂
