Sweetfire beetroot, goat cheese and rocket salad


As one of the lucky bloggers taking part in the #thinkyouknowbeetroot campaign from lovebeetroot  here is the first recipe using one of the samples I have been sent to play with. Any regular readers of my blog will know that I enjoy finding novel ways of using ingredients. I was lucky to already to have a supply of fabulous local goats cheese from Capra Products, the last of homegrown wild rocket and a few tomatoes from the garden. Sweetfire beetroot is baby beetroots marinated in a chilli olive oil dressing, so the beetroot has a slight chilli piquancy, I mixed up a quick olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing ( I use Gift of Oil black label) to pull the dish together.

Ingredients
  • Salad Rocket
  • Sweetfire Beetroot
  • Goats cheese
  • Tomatoes (optional)
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
Method

Place the beetroot on your serving plate, sprinkle with rocket, crumble the goats cheese and drizzle with your dressing. Delicious, simple lunch ideal served with crusty bread to mop up the lovely dressing.

Looks very good, just my type of favourite lunch (I want to come live at yours please).

Looks delicious! My husband has recently fallen in love with beets (making me very happy) so we've been eating a lot of beet and goat cheese salad.
