This salad, made with red beets and red endive is not only delicious, it’s also extremely good for your skin. Red and orange coloured fruit and vegetables contain a high percentage of beta-carotene, which fights free radicals. It also helps to protect your skin from damaging UV-rays because it helps to produce melanin.

Having enough red fruits and vegetables in your diet fights the ageing of the skin and last but not least, it’s also a boost to your immune system. So start eating!

Recipe for 2 people
Preparation time: 10 minutes

Ingredients for salad

  • 1 red beet cut into blocks
  • 2 heads of red endive, in loose leaves
  • 2 heads of little gem, in loose leaves
  • ½ an avocado in slices
  • 2 tbs capers
  • 50 g feta, crumbled
  • 1 tbs roasted sesame seeds

Ingredients for dressing

  • 60 ml olive oil
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 2 tbs capers
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Coarsely ground black pepper


1. Arrange the blocks of red beet, endive leaves, little gem leaves and pieces of avocado in a salad bowl and divide the crumbled feta and capers over it. Roast the sesame seeds for a short time in a dry frying pan and sprinkle them over your salad.

2. Mix all of the ingredients for the dressing thoroughly; a jar with a lid works wonderfully! Pour the dressing over the salad right before you serve it. Enjoy.
