For the dressing:
50g natural organic yogurt or soya yogurt
4g (1 teaspoon) fresh dill - finely chopped
10g (1 teaspoon) horseradish
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
For the salad:
2 Omega-3 eggs hard boiled or poached

6 walnut halves
Rock salt to taste
1 slice of rye toast topped with half a small avocado black pepper and lemon juice or with houmous or tahini
What to do:
Mix the dressing ingredients together.
Boil the eggs (we like the yolks to be a little soft and ever so slightly runny but you should cook them to your taste).
Place the leaves on a plate. Mix the beetroot, peppers and sprouted beans and place on the leaves. Cut the egg into halves and place on the beetroot mix with the walnuts
Top with the dressing and serve immediately.
Toast the rye bread and add the topping of your choice
