Food for Thought for Friday -- Pear and Beetroot Salad

It's never too early to start on healthy eating so I thought I would share with you this delicious idea for a lunchtime salad or starter.

Serves 2

2 cooked beetroot diced
1 ripe pear diced
1 eating apple diced
3 spring onions diced
half a red pepper diced
10 walnut halves broken
a stick of celery finely chopped
as much crispy lettuce as you want sliced thinly or diced

(it's nice to dice these all different sizes as it adds texture)

1 tbs low fat salad dressing (salad cream) or creme fraiche

Toss and serve.
Good to take in a box to work as it doesn't require refrigeration and can be eaten using only a fork.


  1. Sounds great. It's actually a winning combination because beetroot and pear must compensate each other's extremal effects.:)

  2. It is also very deliciously fat free :)
