RECIPE: RAW BEETROOT SALAD with broccolini, feta and honey lemon dressing


I am really excited to share this recipe with you tonight as it comes from a couple of very good friends of mine. Trish and Chris Hunter are friends of ours from the South Coast where my husband and I grew up; Chris is an amazing Chef and Trish knows the in's and out's of world travel as a travel agent and passionate photographer. A few months ago, after a couple of wines and a beautiful dinner (cooked by Chris) we were chatting about what we love and what we would love to do with our lives and our chats led to how Trish and Chris should share their passion for delicious food and Travel with the world as they both have so much to offer in the specific fields. And right there, was when TRAVEL - COOK - CAPTURE was born. I am in love with this new little spot on the web where Trish and Chris share their journeys and incredible recipes. I highly recommend that you bookmark their site and start planning your next adventure with the inspiration they throw your way.
