Hi everyone,

One of my go-to simple lunch time salads is this mouth watering, super simple, smokey bbq beetroot and spinach salad!

Its absolutely packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and is super friendly on the waistline.

As per usual, I wouldn’t eat it unless it tastes amazing!

Enjoy 🙂
