Beetroot and feta salad-low res.jpg

This is one of my favourite salads and takes next to no time to make. It’s a beautiful blend of sweet and sour with some delicious greens and creamy feta. The beetroot provides a generous sweet flavour and the lemon dressing and feta cheese add that tang. This is delicious served with marinaded chicken thigh fillet or lamb chops.
