    You could also pour a trickle of herb olive oil around the tartare.

Remarks:

In this recipe, do be careful with the beeroot, as it dyes everything purple. To show off all the different colours in the dish, you can simply leave out the beetroot or replace it with another vegetable, such as white cabbage.
