For the salad:

  • 4 Beets
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 230 grams Green Beans (Trimmed and Cut in Half)
  • 300 grams Cherry Tomatoes (Halved)
  • 1 Small Onion (Diced)
  • 60 grams Dried Cranberries
  • 60 grams Wild Rocket
  • 125 grams Mini Mozzarella Balls (Halved)

  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Basil (Chopped)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Peel the beets and cut them into 1- 1 ½ inch chunks. Place them on a lined baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 minutes or until the beets are tender.
  • In the meantime, prepare the rest of the salad. Add all of the dressing ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the green beans for 2-3 minutes, until tender-crisp, then transfer to a large serving bowl.
