Beetroot and Goats Cheese Salad

As other recipes on this blog can attest to, beetroot is one of the favourite ingredients of Australians and in this recipe it combines beautifully with goats cheese to make a simple but delicious salad. The smoothness of the beets and goats cheese is complemented by the tartness of the cranberries and a balsamic vinegar. Walnuts give the perfect crunch to finish it off.
