Matchstick Beetroot and Apple Salad

This is a Jamie Oliver recipe that I did for lunch. It was really light and fresh, perfect in the sun, it could also be served as a side salad to a BBQ or just on its own.

Serves 4 as a side

100g Feta cheese
Handful of fresh mint, flat leaf parsley, basil leaves torn into small bits
300g beetroot
1 crunchy apple
1 fresh chili finely sliced or a bit of dried crumbled
8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 juiced lemon

Crumble the feta into a salad bowl, finely slice the beets and apple into matchsticks, add all the ingredients into the bowl and just before serving toss all together with the lemon and olive oil and some pepper, you shouldn't need salt as the feta should be enough, and serve straight away.
