Yay, it’s January! The time of year when you can’t go through a checkout without being bombarded with the latest diet/detox/sadness regimes from those quality magazines. I try not to buy into the new year, new you bullshit. Instead, I want to make more of a choice to eat good food all the time – less obsession and indulgence without guilt. Easy enough, right?

In saying this, I am pretty sure the last salad I touched was of the potato variety. I thought that was probably not ideal, so I put together this little salad. It’s full of wholesome, fresh ingredients. Beetroot, seeds, feta, greens, carrot, pomegranate and cabbage. It’s dressed with my favourite dressing, perfect for the new year and the rest of the summer.
