Beetroot, goat cheese and walnut salad

    10 min

    This is a delightfully simple salad, yet so sophisticated and flavourful. I often have it for lunch, though it makes a lovely starter as well. Use the softest, freshest goat cheese you can find. I sometimes even use the spreadable kind.

    Toasted walnuts

    To toast your own walnuts, simply heat a dry frying pan over medium heat. Add the walnuts and toast until lightly browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Watch them closely so they don't burn!
