Pickled beetroot and goat’s cheese – another great taste combination. As the title suggest this salad is simply a matter of opening some packets, unscrewing a jar, shaking up some dressing and slicing a shallot.
It’s not always easy to find the time to make a healthy meal. Even if all you have to do is grate and slice some veg, even that can seem like too much bother. This is a salad for those times. It requires nothing more than taking the ingredients out of their packets or jars and putting them in a bowl together.
Well, I suppose you do have to slice the cheese and shallot, shell the nuts and you do need a little, just a little, salad dressing, but it still takes less than 5 minutes to put together and it’s filling enough to be a light meal.
The salad dressing I use here is a mix of even parts sunflower oil and red wine vinegar, a half teaspoon of honey, and a good pinch of salt and pepper, but use whatever dressing you have handy. You just need a tablespoon of dressing to toss the salad leaves in.
To keep this gluten-free make sure the beetroot is not pickled in malt vinegar. Just always check the ingredients for allergens.
