Beetroot salad: purple mania


Hi guys,

Ok it seems to be salad mania up in here! 
This is what I am dubbing my purple haze salad. It is super simple and very filling.
 I adore the colours, even though it is spring there is something very autumnal and harvest supper about it. No?

I have a weird thing about beetroot. Even weirder than my twice a year banana thing. Beetroot takes me back to primary school and having manky over cooked mushy beetroots, possibly with a strand of hair or 2.....ummm sexy.
Over the last few years I have been eating it more mainly shredded (seems to be the only way i will eat it)as it is super nutritious and high in anti oxidants.
My mum has been raving about beetroot for years but I never could bring myself to eat them, which is strange as purple is my favourite colour.
