Not only is this dish full of flavour it is actually good for you too!

Did you know that beetroots contain valuable nutrients that can help lower blood pressure, boost stamina and support your immune system?

This salad also goes a long way to support and fight inflammation. Beetroots contain a source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protect us from different environmental stress. It also helps reduce inflammation, enhance performance and protects internal organs.

Beets aren’t the only ingredient that should be highlighted in this dish. Both the apple cider vinegar and raspberry vinegars are alkalising in nature making them a fantastic support to our body’s detoxification process. With many people’s diet typically being too acidic, ingredients such as the vinegars are a great addition to incorporate in to your daily diet.
