Zesty Carrot and Beetroot Salad Recipe

Written by Justin Thompson

We know Easter is all about chocolate bunnies and sweet treats, but it’s always good to sneak in a veggie or two for your Easter dinner. Our carrot and beetroot salad is the perfect side to any roast and includes ingredients you can get on your own milkround. Our sweet carrots complement the zesty orange and earthy beetroots perfectly and are a great addition to any spring dinner.

Farm fresh veg 

Our veg may look a little wonky, but that’s because we don’t believe in throwing away produce because it looks a little different – that’s what veg is supposed to look like! It also supports independent farmers in the process, as they’re able to use all of their delicious and fresh veggies. Anyway, you won’t even notice any extra lumps and bumps once it’s all chopped in your carrot and beetroot salad.
