Ever have one of those nights when you just do not feel like cooking a large meal?

I have this quite regularly, and in this instance I decided to make this salad and use it as a main meal instead of an accompaniment.

Although it IS a salad, we had it one night as a full meal, as it has vegetables, fruit and cheese and is therefore quite balanced.

The combination of these ingredients is unusual and very good.  It is also very healthy as beetroot has many health qualities as they are high in immune boosting Vitamin C, figre and essential minerals, all of which are important for overall health.  Beetroots also contact folate which is a Vitamin  B. 
No cooking required for this recipe!
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 3 servings as a main

2 Large beetroots
2 ripe pears
100-150 g feta cheese
Lemon/oil dressing
½ bunch mint (optional)
½ handful sunflower seeds (optional)

Peel the raw beetroots.

Peel the pears and cut out core.

Cut the beetroot and pears into fine matchsticks or  use a food processor as this is much quicker.

Add some pepper to taste - I like my pepper so usually add about half a teaspoon full.

Cut the feta, and mix it in with the beetroot mixture.

Add the mint (optional and not added in photos), and also the sunflower seeds.

Make a lemon/oil dressing by mixing equal amounts of these two, and add about ½ cup, though this can of course be varied to taste.
