Ingredients

  • 1 bunch small beetroot
  • 1 small orange
  • 1⁄4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1⁄3 cup fruity green extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preparation method

Wash and peel the beetroot, then grate them as finely as possible to yield two cups. The finer the beetroot, the more luscious the salad.

Remove the zest from the orange with a potato peeler, being careful to avoid all pith, and cut it into fine strips.

Toss the grated beetroot with the orange zest and the parsley.

Whisk the lemon juice and olive oil together and dress the salad, then season with salt and pepper.
