Beetroot and Carrot Salad with Pomegranate Dressing


Last week we talked about the beetroot glut and I gave you some ideas about how we are enjoying them and last night I made this salad for dinner and I'm pretty sure I haven't shared it with you before.
It is a recipe originally from the Thermomix recipe community but it was a little too sweet for me so I have adjusted the dressing. I'm pretty sure you could use the pulse function on your food processor to achieve a similar texture.
This recipe is SUPER-fast and don't be scared to tweak it and make it your own.

Dressing
1-2 tabs of pomegranate molasses
1-2 tabs vinegar (eg balsamic, white wine, chive flavoured)
3 tabs of good olive oil
squeeze of orange juice

Whizz to combine in your processor 

Add 
400g of beetroot trimmed and quartered
400g of carrots cut into similar sized chunks.

Pulse till chopped to a moderately fine texture.
Stir in a handful of currants or raisins or cranberries and a couple of handfuls of pumpkin seed kernels

Spoon onto a bed of baby spinach and sprinkle with cubes of feta.

Divine!
