This is a really simple salad that can be served as a side or works equally as well as a light meal. Avocados are great for the skin and the ginger and honey dressing gives the salad a really rich flavour. It takes minutes to prepare so is a great way to serve your family a quick healthy meal. The red colour of the endive and radicchio plays beautifully against the green of the avocado, it often gets dubbed as a Christmas salad due to the mix of colours.

- Slice the avocado, beetroot and mushrooms and mix with the salad leaves.
- Cover with the dressing and serve.
