Hidden at the bottom of the garden, these beautiful beetroot (Chioggia Candy Stripe and Golden) have been plumping up nicely all summer.  A last minute salad was needed for a shared lunch at work, so after a wet walk to the bottom of the garden I settled on these.  I just had to take a photo, in spite of the rain, because of those fantastic colours.  I spent half an hour in a rush before work madly peeling them into wafer thin curls – we had them for lunch, simply dressed with a splash of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon – lovely.
