Preparation of the beetroot and pear salad

  1. Start by freeing the cooked beets from their plastic wrap, peel them well (the peel is thin and will come off easily) and cut them all into medium-sized pieces, removing any hard parts.
  2. Arrange the beets in a nice salad bowl and add the washed, peeled and diced pears.
  3. Clean the courgettes well and also reduce them into small cubes and put them in the bowl.
  4. Squeeze all the organic (or at least untreated) lemon and transfer the juice to the bowl with the beetroot, pear and zucchini.
  5. Turn well adding a little unrefined salt and quality extra virgin olive oil.
  6. Pick some seeds you like – we'll put sunflower seeds and whole flax seeds here – and toss them in the salad. The seeds make up the crunchy part of this preparation and will also add valuable nutrients to the beet and pear salad. An elementary dish but very rich in health, goodness and harmony.
  7. Briefly wash the fresh parsley and the type and tear off some leaves with your hands, adding them to the salad which is now ready to serve.
