A Simple Beetroot Salad with Goat’s Cheese

Beetroot and goat cheese salad

Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.

Her beetroot salad is truly tasty and literally consist of cooked beetroot, sliced onion, sugar, salt and vinegar to taste. That’s it. No frills, no fuss. She cooks it in great big batches and it keeps for weeks on end in the fridge!

Here in England raw beetroot by the crate is not really as easily available like it is back in South Africa. However, here we get our beetroot already cooked so no more struggling over a hot stove for hours ensuring that you don’t have purple splashes everywhere by the time the beetroot is cooked through.

My version is a little different than my mother’s, but is equally as tasty and super quick.


This is all depending on how much salad you would like to make and also according to your taste, so please feel free to adjust.

  • 1 packet of ready cooked beetroot (I recently discovered Love Beets no vinegar beetroot pouch. It is so flavourful and you can reseal the packet for later, so much easier!)
  • 1 stick of soft goat’s cheese
  • a splash of balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Chop the beetroot into bite-size chunks and place into a mixing bowl.
  2. Pour vinegar over and season to taste. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Spoon into a serving dish and crumble the goats cheese over. Serve chilled.
