Beetroot, Blood Orange and Mint Salad

Tasty and in season....

Serves 4
Prep time 30m
Cooking time 45-60 mins


  • 3 large cooked beetroots
  • 3 blood oranges
  • A splash of sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ chopped red onion
  • 16 sprigs of fresh mint
  • A pinch of salt (0.25g)
  • A pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.05g)



1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Trim the stems of the beetroot, leaving 2cm at the top of each. Wrap the beetroots individually in foil, leaving the stems sticking out. Place on a baking tray and bake for 45-60 minutes or until soft enough to easily insert a small knife.

2. Leave to cool, then rub off the skins, cut into chunks or into eighths and place into a salad bowl.

3. Cut both the top and bottom of the blood oranges and slice off the peel in downward strips, removing the pith as well. Slice either side of the papery membranes of the oranges to release the segments.

4. Add to the cooked beetroot then squeeze any excess juice from the oranges. Add a splash of sherry vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil.

5. Toss in the red onion and roughly chop the mint. Season with a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper and serve.
