It was not one of the greatest ideas of going to the doctor and getting oneself on a rest!! Darn tendon!! decided to make standing and walking an ordeal. This means all my favourite things are on hold. The weather too in support of this diagnosis decides to pour!!
Despite all these, my dearest family volunteered to get the veggies for the week. Guess what, they know something new will always cheer me up. So, they get me some chervil. Since I am not moving much, the recipe is a simple one and images are captured by the children.
Ingredients in this salad
This fresh beetroot salad with chervil salad dressing is perhaps one of the easiest salads to make.
Beetroot- fresh beetroot is wonderful for the folate content, fibre. It has been recommended as one of the best for liver detox too. If you don’t like chopping it, grate it or spiralize it for this fresh beetroot salad.
Tomato- the tomatoes are the first of the lot from our garden. Hopefully, this will be the first of the set of tomato-based salads. The tomato is a perfect contrast to the sweetness of fresh beets and works wonders with the chervil salad dressing.
Rocket leaves – Rocket adds such a lovely lightness and colour to the salad. Rocket leaves taste fantastic in any salad, so this is no exception. You can use any mesclun mix that you like in this recipe or even spinach.
Chervil salad dressing- the herby chervil is a tender leaf that is close to parsley. It has distinct aniseed like flavour. In fact, the herb is mild and yet adds a great flavour to the salad. the combination of the salad with a citrus element, minimal oil with salat and black pepper creates a simple dressing. Don’t be fooled, the flavour is far from ordinary, it is amazing.
