Mache & Beetroot Salad

12 Feb

Mache or Lambs Lettuce is a lovely and fairly delicate winter salad leaf. It makes a great winter salad teamed with shredded raw beetroot and walnuts.

  • mache
  • 1-2 beetroot
  • handful shelled walnuts
  • Olive oil
  • white wine vinegar
  • salt

Peel the raw beetroot and shred or grate finely. Wash the lambs lettuce and spin dry. Bash the walnuts up a bit into smaller pieces. Lay the leaves in a wide bowl, scatter the beetroot and nuts. Give it a pinch of salt  and add a slosh of olive oil, toss gently then add a little vinegar. Serve as a starter or side salad.
Variations: Use truffle oil for an even earthier taste
