Com­bin­ing omega-3-packed salmon and beetroot, which is nat­u­rally high in ni­trates, known to boost en­durance, this light bite serves a double whammy


¼ green ap­ple, cut into match­sticks • juice of ½ lemon • 1 tsp but­ter • 1 slice of sour­dough bread •1 golden beetroot, sliced • 125g smoked salmon •2 tbsp pick­led beetroot •¼ shal­lot, finely chopped • 1 tsp ca­pers • 1 tsp finely chopped dill • 3 tbsp rape­seed oil • 1½ tbsp bal­samic vine­gar • 1 tsp whole­grain mus­tard • salt and pep­per • hand­ful of water­cress (op­tional)


1. Pop the ap­ple match­sticks in a bowl with the lemon juice to soak while you but­ter the bread. Ar­range the golden beetroot slices on the bread, then pile the smoked salmon on top.

2. Add the pick­led beetroot, along with the chopped shal­lot, ca­pers and dill.

3. Make a vinai­grette with the oil, bal­samic vine­gar, mus­tard, salt and pep­per. Give it a whisk and driz­zle it over the beetroot, then pop the ap­ple match­sticks on top and gar­nish with water­cress if us­ing. Sea­son to taste. Beet that, baby.
