  1. Step 1

    Place sultanas in a small heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add the vinegar and bring to the boil. Pour hot vinegar over sultanas and set aside to cool to room temperature. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sultanas to a large bowl.

  2. Step 2

    Add the shallot to the remaining vinegar in the bowl. Add the oil to the vinegar mixture in a thin, steady stream, whisking until emulsified.

  3. Step 3

    Add the beetroot to the sultanas in the bowl. Pour the dressing over the beetroot mixture and toss to combine. Season. Add the carrot, mint and parsley and fold to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl to serve.

Recipe tip

Serve with mint and flat-leaf parsley leaves

Smart swap: Don’t have any red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar handy? Balsamic or apple cider vinegar will work just as well for this salad dressing, if you have either in the pantry.
