Steak, Beetroot & Lentil Salad

I love beetroot and for ages thought that I could not have it on the Low FODMAP diet, however after a recent check through changes on the `monash app I found we could have pickled beetroot, yay! This is a lovely fresh salad that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. The sweetness of the beetroots and walnuts contrast very well with the sharpness of the wholegrain mustard and saltiness of the feta cheese.
