Pear, walnut and beetroot salad

Beetroot has to be one of my all time favourite root vegetables, it has a rich, earthy flavour, and is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It also makes a killer salad when roasted, alas i’ve come up with this hearty pear, walnut and beetroot salad, which is a great year round salad. It makes a great addition to any summer BBQ, or a simple, fresh and hearty side salad during the winter months. I like to make this on a Sunday and take it for lunch on weekdays. I always look forward to lunch whenever I bring it. You could also add feta cheese if you wanted some cheese, but honestly, its great without it!
