Goat's Cheese and Beetroot Salad

Ingredients
  • 1 packet of rocket
  • 1 large handful of walnuts
  • 3-4 cooked beetroots
  • 1 large round of goats cheese
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Black pepper & salt

Everyone needs some easy, delicious and healthy recipes in their arsenal that can be whipped together in mere minutes when the munchies come. I love this salad and you see lots of variations of this in salad bars and deli's all around Dublin. It couldn't be easier to make and is gorgeous on its own, but also makes a perfect side salad to a piece of meat or a summer BBQ.

This took me about 5 minutes to make and I was taking my time, so see how quick you can throw it together!
