Goats Cheese, Raw Beetroot and Pumpkin Salad

I love a good gutsy salad that you can have on its own for lunch or as a side for dinner. This is scrumptious! 


  • Mixed salad leaves
  • ½ beetroot, sliced raw (i use my mandolin for this)
  • ½ pumpkin or butternut squash diced into cubes
  • Mangetout
  • Good quality goats cheese
  • Tbls sunflower seeds
  • Tbls Pumpkin seeds
  • Tbls Pine nuts
  • Chopped coriander


  • 2 tbls  olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp soy sauce
  • Black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Roast the cubed pumpkin for 25 min. Let cool. 
  3. Clean and finely slice raw beets, use a mandolin if you have one.
  4. Blanche the mangetout
  5. Put all of the above and the salad leaves into a bowl
  6. Heat a pan on high heat for a few minutes, throw in pumpkin, sunflower seeds and pine nuts and toast for a few minutes. Take off heat
  7. Mix dressing and pour over salad, mixing thoroughly so the dressing covers all leaves and veg.
  8. Toss in some chopped coriander.
  9. Once all mixed put out onto a plate, top with toasted seeds and crumb over the goats cheese. I used a local brand Ardsallagh, which is delicious.


There you go, a delicious filling salad that tastes so good and is full of nutrients!!
