Quite unlike our own Christmas foods, this colourful Mexican salad brings a welcome shaft of freshness to any celebratory meal. If it sounds brazen to mix beetroot with pineapple and pomegranate, don't be deterred – it works. Although it is not suggested to put it on the table alongside the turkey and sprouts, it is a real joy served with hot or cold ham, or with the cold turkey on Boxing Day.
This salad has wonderful flavours, so a German Riesling would be a good choice. An off-dry white will match the salad for sweetness.
