Ingredients

  • 1 jar sliced pickled beetroot.
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 apple

Salad Dressing

  • 1 jar sliced pickled beetroot.
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 apple
  • 1 oz butter
  • 2 tablespoons distilled (white) vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon made mustard
  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt.

Method

  • STEP 1
    I would advise you to wear fine latex gloves when preparing the beetroot - otherwise your hands will be quite stained.
  • STEP 2
    Dice the beetroot, cooked carrot and apple. Put all these into a medium-sized bowl. Chop the onion finely. Cut the celery into small pieces. Add these to mixture and stir to allow the flavours to develop.
  • STEP 3
    Allow the salad to stand for at least one hour before serving.
  • STEP 4
    For the dressing, melt the butter in non-stick saucepan. Beat egg, vinegar, mustard, sugar and salt and add to pan. Heat very gently, stirring all the time until custard-like. Allow to cool. Add cream or milk to salad dressing before serving. The dressing should be like thick cream. The dressing can be kept in the fridge for one week.
