"This is such a vibrant, fresh salad! Beetroot is a fashionable and healthy ingredient in its own right, but the zingy addition of the ClemenGolds makes it very special. This would be great served as a light lunch or a side to grilled Chicken, duck or even fish." Sophie Michell, TV chef and author

In the following video, chef and author Sophie Michell shows you how to create this beautiful salad that will brighten your kitchen table and your palate.

  • For the dressing, zest and juice the ClemenGold into a small saucepan, add the vinegar, bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer for 15 minutes or until reduced by half.
  • Then take off the heat, cool completely, add the olive oil and chives.
  • For the salad, take the lettuce leaves, trim and slice the fennel as thinly as possible, then mix with the dressing and the watercress.
  • Slice the beetroot into six and peel the 4 ClemenGold, then slice through the middle, to get lovely flower like slices.
