Recipe Notes

Tip: when you handle beetroot it is a good idea to wear gloves to prevent your hands from being stained.

Variation: For a beetroot and bean salad, substitute the rocket with 400 g (14 oz) lightly blanched baby green beans, replace the avocado with 1/3 cup (40 g) toasted slivered almonds, and use 175 g (6 oz) marinated feta instead of goat's cheese. Whisk 2 tablespoons of the oil form the feta with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and drizzle over the salad.
