ODE TO ORANGES

Shredded beetroot, carrot and toasted sesame salad with miso-orange dressing
Inspired by Epicurious.com
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon white miso
1 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
½ teaspoon finely grated orange peel
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced shallots
500g shredded raw beets
500g shredded carrots
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
To make the dressing, start by whisking together the vinegar, orange juice and miso paste, then add the olive and sesame oils and then toss in the fresh ginger, grated orange peel and minced shallots and let sit while you prepare your salad.
For the salad, peel and finely shred the beetroots and carrots then toss well in the dressing and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds and chopped coriander just before serving. We recommend you toss the salad about 30 min before serving so that the dressing can break through the raw veggie slaw.
Serve with some barbecued chicken breast and you’re set for lunch!
