The goats cheese is optional, but I think it works as it makes a nice contrast to the earthy beetroot. Of course you could use a dairy free alternative like Gary which is actually made from coconuts and is very popular in the UK right now. I have to admit I have not tried Gary yet as every time I go to seek it out it is sold out.
This Beetroot Barley Goats Cheese Salad is not much of a recipe as I eye-balled most of the ingredients: cooked barley, cooked beetroot including its juices, a little balsamic vinegar an extra virgin oil for dressing, salt and pepper and then topped with rocket and goats cheese. Quite simple really.
I am sharing the Autumn Leaves photograph with Sunday Snap hosted by JibberJabber UK and the Winter Beetroot Barley Goats Cheese Salad with Soups, Salads and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen.
If Food 'N' Flix accept this second entry (see the first here), then I have another recipe for our host Kahakai Kitchen who has chosen Beetlejuice. One of my favourite movies but it comes second to Edward Scissorhands. I took inspiration from the Beet colour that runs throughout the movie.
Thanks to Kahakai Kitchen I am also linking this Beetroot Barley Goats Cheese Salad with #Burtoween for Fandom Foodies which is a nod to Tim Burton movies and I really am a fan, I went a couple of weeks back to see Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children and that is saying something as I haven't been to the cinema since 3D Avatar in Glasgow. The Burtoween event is hosted by Witchy Kitchen. Perfect! And finally, Marathons &Motivation and Ilka's Blog
