Beetroot and Herb Salad

September 17, 2016

This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

I was introduced to a series of Cookery Books, The Monday Morning Club, via this Beetroot and Herb salad at a friend’s house. The salad is so delicious and, when I looked up the cookery books, I loved the whole concept of a group of six women getting together every Monday morning, in Sydney. Over endless cups of tea, they found recipes with soul, recipes that might be lost, recipes that tell a story of a community: a community where it is always about the food.

Grate the beetroot into a bowl. Make the dressing by mixing together the olive oil, pomegranate molasses, rosewater and lemon juice in a small bowl or jar, then pour over the beetroot and stir through.

Just before serving toss through the chopped herbs, pistachio nuts and pomegranate seeds.
