Bush Cooking with Roothy: Apple and beetroot salad

‘SALAD isn’t a meal on its own’, we hear you say. And normally we’d agree with that sentiment.

However, Roothy has cobbled together a salad we reckon could leave a belly satisfied.

“It’s essentially an apple and beetroot salad, but with a few tiny, little Roothisms chucked in just to make it something a bit special,” Roothy said.

All you’ll need to whip up this simple and healthy bush meal are a bunch of peeled and chopped apples, an equal quantity of diced beetroot, some beaten walnuts, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and horseradish.

First, fry up some oil in a pan and add the walnuts until they brown. In a separate bowl, add two tablespoons of olive oil, two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, a few squirts of honey, a teaspoon of horseradish and then stir through.

Put the beetroot, apple and walnut in a serving bowl, then pour the oil/vinegar/honey/horseradish concoction on top. Stir through again before indulging.

“There you go: it gets the kid’s vote of confidence, too. It is good stuff guys – it’s probably even healthy!”
