The tell-tale earthy flavour and the flushed pink stains of using beets in any recipe make it a star ingredient. The tangy blue cheese dressing and silky texture of the avocado makes this easy and tasty recipe, a sure fire way to bring luxury to a starter or a special salad for two. For extra crunch, try topping with crispy bits of bacon or pancetta.

Ingredients

  • 1 hot house lettuce
  • 2 small beet, washed and peeled
  • 1 avocado, peeled and stone removed
  • 75g blue cheese
  • 3tbsp natural yoghurt
  • 2tsp of pine nuts

If beetroot is in season, simply peel and boil for 8-10mins until tender. Allow to cool and then slice.

Method

  1. Share the lettuce onto 2 plates. Prepare the beets and avocado and slice them. Arrange on top of the lettuce.
  2. Blitz 50g of the cheese with the yoghurt in a mini blender or simply whisk them together to form a silky dressing.
  3. Pour the blue cheese dressing over the salad and crumble the remaining 25g over the top and sprinkle the pine nuts. Serve.
