Tangy Radish and Beet Coleslaw

Many people don’t realize that you can eat beets raw. The first ones of summer are perfect in this coleslaw. Serve it on its own, topped with hard-boiled eggs, or alongside barbecued steak.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice and black pepper. Add grated vegetables and parsley. Toss until they are thoroughly coated with dressing. Place a small frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add pumpkin (or sunflower) seeds and gently toast until they start to brown. Be careful not to overcook, as they can quickly turn from perfectly golden coloured to burnt.
  3. Divide salad among four plates and scatter some toasted pumpkin seeds overtop.
