Quick and Easy Buckwheat-Beetroot Salad

Looking for a easy salad that's tasty for lunch?

This simple and quick salad can be made and stored in the fridge without dressing for a few days (which means it lasts longer for more great meals). 

Buckwheat also contains good amount of fibre and many nutrients such as manganese, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper and rutin.

It's a great addition to your meals, especially if you are using a gluten-free or a plant based diet. 

Here's how to make your salad today. πŸ™‚
