A simple, healthy salad, tasty and easy to put together. It looks rather good too, though I might add a splash of something orange next time to enhance the effect (tangerine?). A few seeds or walnuts might also work well. I often serve this with chicken thighs marinated in fresh lemon juice and herbs. Lamb would be amazing with this too. This will certainly be the star of future family BBQ’s!
Asparagus & Beetroot Salad with Goats Cheese & Lime
A simple, healthy salad, tasty and easy to put together!
- Approximately 12-18 spears of asparagus
- 200g cooked beetroot
- 2 bunches watercress
- 200g Goats Cheese
- Sea Salt
- 1tbsp finely chopped chives
- Olive oil, for drizzling
- 2 limes, one zested and the other cut into wedges
- A small handful of chopped toasted hazelnuts
Wash the asparagus and remove the ends.
Remove the large stems and discoloured leaves from the watercress, rinse in cold water and dry carefully.
Cut the goats cheese into cubes and lay on a plate. Season well with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with chives.
Cover and leave in the fridge.
To assemble, using a potato peeler shave the asparagus into a large bowl. Add the watercress, season well and drizzle with olive oil; toss gently and arrange on a serving dish.
Place the cubes of cheese on top, tucking them in and around the leaves. Top with toasted hazelnuts, sprinkle over the lime zest and serve with lime wedges on the side.
