Pink salad

Made this yesterday. It is tasty. Recording recipe for later reference.

beetroot (cooked)
sliced apple
dill (could also use fennel or maybe even celery or coriander)
lamb's lettuce (but could use most greens; chickweed would be nice)
white crumbly cheese (used Lancashire; Wensleydale would also work, a good feta would be delightful; some blue cheeses might also be good but I tend not to like them)

Chop appropriately and mix together. Pretty pink and green! You can eat it as it is, really. Or you could add:

olive oil
Greek yoghurt
apple cider vinegar
salt

to get the balance of acidity/wetness/etc that you like.

Nuts or seeds might go quite nicely, too; pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or perhaps walnuts.

If you want to turn it into something more substantial, you could add cooked rice - the beetroot juice turns it shocking pink, so it looks fantastic!

I tend to make something similar with sliced steamed runner beans, lemon oil and balsamic vinegar.
