  • 2 tbsp roasted sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds

  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup optional
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp coarse pepper powder

Instructions
 

PREPARATION OF GARLIC LEMON DRESSING:

  • Whisk all the dressing ingredients together.
  • I like to add them into a jar, close the lid tightly and give it a good shake.

PREPARATION OF THE SALAD:

  • Mix carrot and beetroot together in a bowl.
  • Add the dressing and toss.
  • Cover the bowl with a tight lid or cling film and allow it to cool in the fridge till required.
  • This allows the dressing falvour to infuse into the carrot and beetroot.
  • Just before serving add the seeds, raisins and fresh coriander. Toss and serve.

Notes

  • Add dried fruits of your choice like cranberries, goji berries, sultanas, etc
  • Add nuts if you like.
  • Serve with parmesan cheese if you like.
