  • 2 med Target beetroots, peeled and finely shaved
  • 4 med radishes, finely shaved
  • 5 medium figs, quartered
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds only
  • 50g Pink and purple microherbs (radish/ purple basil/ red kale/ red garnet/ sorrel)

Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, pepper and salt and toss beetroot through gently, set aside to soften, pickle and gently marinate for up to 30 minutes.
  2. Drain the beetroot but reserve liquid. Whisk olive oil through remaining liquid to create dressing. Adjust acidity with stevia if desired.
  3. On a large flat platter, arrange beetroot, radishes, and figs, and then scatter pomegranate seeds, microherbs and dollops of goat’s cheese or Labne.

Notes

  1. Fresh raspberries and blackberries are a nice alternative or addition to the figs.
