Jewish cooking has a wonderful tracklement called khrame, which is horseradish sauce with beetroot.It is probably this that made me think of this combination.


  • 6 frankfurters
  • 6 small pickled beetroot, drained and chopped
  • 2 onions, chopped


Put your frankfurters into boiling water, bring back to the boil, remove from the heat and leave for 10 minutes. Drain, chop and place in a bowl with the beetroot, onions and capers.

Make a dressing with the remaining ingredients. Be sparing with the vinegar as the beetroot will be tart. If using fresh horseradish, the most painless way to grate it is in a food processor, but be careful
