text size: Decrease Increase


(Makes 4 servings)

3 medium beetroots
Goat cheese
Pine nuts (or walnuts if you prefer)
Baby spinach
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar



  1. Boil the beetroots with skin on in a pot until the knife can go easily through them. It may take up to 40 minutes
  2. While waiting, put two handfuls of pine nuts onto a low heated pan and roast them for about 10 minutes constantly mixing them with a spatula. You can also use walnuts or a combination of both types of nuts
  3. When beets are soft enough, drain the water from the pot, let them cool down, and peel the skin off
  4. Cut the beets into thin half moon shaped slices
  5. In a big bowl, toss in the baby spinach leaves, and add the sliced beets and roasted pine nuts.
  6. Cut up the goat cheese into small cubes (as much or as little as you want) and add to the salad
  7. In a separate bowl whisk 4 tablespoons of olive oil and 4 table spoons of balsamic vinegar together with a fork for a few minutes, and pour the mixture over the salad
  8. Add a bit of salt and pepper as you prefer, and enjoy!
