Ingredients

  • 300g cooked beetroot (fresh or vacuum-packed, not from a jar)

    Beetroot

    beat-root

    A favourite in 1970's British salads (served cooked and pickled in vinegar), beetroot is a…

  • 200g log firm goat's cheese, such as Sainte-Maure de Touraine, or Capricorn
  • 4 handfuls small-leaf salad, containing rocket and herbs

For the dressing

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 4 tbsp walnut oil

Method

  1. Thinly slice the beetroot, either with a very sharp knife or on a mandolin. Arrange overlapping slices over four dinner plates.

  2. Put all the dressing ingredients into a jar, replace the lid, then shake well to mix. Drizzle a little over the beetroot. Slice the goat’s cheese into 12 and put 3 slices on top of each serving of beetroot. Toss the salad leaves in a little dressing, then put a small pile of leaves on top of each serving of cheese. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.

Delicious! We had it as a main course with new potatoes and chopped walnuts. And beetroot from our own garden... Can't beat the taste of that!
