Grilled goats' cheese in this beetroot salad is a really lovely warm addition to a cold salad. The dressing contains horseradish which is quite hot and peppery, and goes really well with the sweeter beetroot. Make this salad recipe for a dinner party or for lunch. It goes just as well with some leafy green salad.
