Any time you ask my dad about food he always brings up oxtail. I’m fairly sure it would be his dessert island dish. When he tried out this recipe, he told me it was "bloody great!" so I think it got his seal of approval! If you haven’t cooked oxtail before the aim is to cook them until the meat just falls off the bone. I serve mine sitting proudly on top of some creamy colcannon mash.
There are a few vegetables I can grow without fail and thankfully one of them is the mighty beetroot, which roasts beautifully and is a great addition to this lentil salad. This dish makes a nice lunchtime dish and is excellent in lunchboxes.
