Beetroot & Goat Cheese Salad

I love this salad for the vast flavours that work together to give you mega taste with minimal effort


Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.. These delicious root veggies are much more than a pickled staple. Give this salad a try and have your body thank you for it. ENJOY!
