Gluten Free Beetroot Salad to Celebrate Spring


It’s time for my gluten free beetroot salad to make an appearance. Welcome to a gluten free spring! Now that it is officially spring, it’s salad time. Today I’m sharing one of my all time favourite salads, the gluten free beetroot salad. Of course, it’s the creamy purple colour and flavour that does it for me in this salad. It’s next level with minimal effort. That beautiful spring like colour of the beetroots mixed with cream reminds me of lavender. While the fresh flavours of tarragon and chives lifts the whole thing to another level. If you find some edible blooms to sprinkle over the top, all the better.

Making a Meal of the Gluten Free Beetroot Salad

Pair this salad with ham off the bone and a potato bake and you have the makings of a lazy Sunday lunch. The ingredients are easy to find and the prep time is minimal. I often make a potato bake for Saturday dinner, then use the leftovers for this Sunday lunch.

Put a Spring in your Step with the Beetroot Health Bonuses

With the world still managing the COVID pandemic, the focus is well and truly on wellbeing and health. Beetroots have many helpful compounds that reduce inflammation and protect cells from damage. In addition, beetroots are rich in folate (vitamin B9) which helps cells grow and function. Folate plays a key role in controlling damage to blood vessels, which can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. So not only is this salad pretty in colour, delicious to eat, but it’s also good for you too. Think of this as you bounce into spring and prepare for the run towards summer.

Lovely to have you along for the ride as we look towards summertime meals and gluten free goodies for you to make and share with those you love. Wishing you a safe and joyful spring, back soon with more, Mel
