Raw Summer Salad

Raw Summer Salad

It’s the glorious days of late sunsets, unfussy outside dining and chilled crisp wines.

This salad is a bowl brimming with summer textures, flavours and colours. The fruit is not overly sweet and combines wonderfully with the crunchy earthiness of the beetroot and almonds and creamy salty feta. I kept the dressing quite acidic to balance with the sweetness of the fruit.

Serve the salad with a glass of fruity Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio as a perfect accompaniment to this light summer meal.
