Tried this today as a lunch as part of my 5:2 diet.
The dish didn't look lie the one above as I tossed the salad in the yoghurt dressing and the beetroot turned everything pink!
However, the meal itself was delicious. Will definitely do this again!

Outstanding. The combination of flavours is simply perfect. And it's healthy too

The flavor combination here is gorgeous. The presentation is a bit tricky, particularly if your beetroot, like mine, is cooked but not vinegared, as it leaves color turning the whole salad pink. I think the trick may be to layer or arrange everything but not mix it at all. As you serve it just make sure to get everything on each plate. I practiced this for a midweek dinner and it was super quick and easy to make, but would happily serve it at a dinner party as it's quite posh and delicious, hubby said 'exotic'. Healthy too, bonus!
