Horseradish adds kick and character to the dressing for this deliciously different salad from Steve Saunders
Method1. Place the beetroot (without peeling) into a large pan of boiling water and cook until tender. This will probably take about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the beetroot. Rinse immediately under cold running water, peel and cut them into quarters.
2. Drain the baby artichokes and cut them into halves. Mix the beetroot and artichokes together, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and squeeze the lime juice over.
3. Dress the leaves with 2 tablespoons of the basil oil and season to taste.
4. Mix the crème fraiche carefully with the horseradish and chives and season to taste.
5. Toss the beetroot, artichokes and salad leaves together in a large bowl. Divide the salad between 4 salad plates. Top each salad with a spoonful of the horseradish crème fraiche, drizzle with the remaining basil oil and a little balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
