* caveat: there is no recipe for meatballs in this post. I uh, bought mine from Tesco. There is a recipe for beetroot salad though!
So. In case you don’t follow me on twitter, you might have missed the case of my Recent Obsessive Compulsive Infatuation with meatballs last week. I woke up Tuesday thinking about meatballs, and I then ate meatballs every. single. day. for a week.
I have serious emotional food issues I tell you.
And if there’s something I’ve learnt from dating a guy from somewhere up there near Scandinavia, it’s that meatballs, they go brilliantly with beetroot salad. I didn’t make that up, the guys at the Scandinavian Kitchen will totally vouch for me, they make the same thing.
So. The beetroot salad. A stolen recipe from Panu’s mum, this is the easiest and most deliciously salad you’ll ever make. And it’s a natural hot pink.
What more could you ask for?
