Beetroot, Carrot & Pickle Slaw

Beetroot & Pickle Slaw

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I posted a recipe!! Where does the time go? I have to admit I’ve had a long dry spell when it comes to posting recipes on my blog – too many other life distractions going on!

BUT the sunny weather and having lunch with my extremely talented-in-the-kitchen bestie, Justine, inspired me with this latest creation. Yesterday, Jus and I created a simpler version of today’s recipe, with wild garlic flowers (utterly delicious). And so I got creative this bank holiday weekend and came up with this amazing (in my opinion!!) dish, which is inspired by yesterday’s salad and another awesome salad that my brother-in-law Paul made a while a go. This recipe is not totally raw, but mostly raw 🙂  I hope you love it as much as I do!
