pickled beetroot,

radicchio and goat’s cheese salad

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 heads radicchio, trimmed, separated into leaves 
  • 200g (7 oz) log ash goat’s cheese, sliced 

pickled beetroot

  • ½ cup (125ml/4¼ fl oz) water
  • 1 cup (250ml/8½ fl oz) apple cider vinegar
  • ⅓ cup (80ml/2¾ fl oz) honey
  • ¼ cup fresh sage leaves 
  • sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 3 medium beetroot, peeled and thinly sliced using a mandoline
  • 4 small target beetroot, scrubbed and thinly sliced using a mandoline

honey walnut clusters


  • 1 cup (100g/3½ oz) walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  1. To make the pickled beetroot, place the water, vinegar, honey, sage, salt and pepper into a glass jug and mix to combine. Place beetroot and target beetroot in separate glass bowls. Add two-thirds of the pickling liquid to the beetroot and one-third of the pickling liquid to the target beetroot. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight to pickle. 
  2. To make the honey walnut clusters, place the walnuts, honey and salt in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until golden. Spoon onto a sheet of non-stick baking paper and cool for 10 minutes before breaking into clusters.
  3. When ready to serve, drain both beetroot from pickling liquids, reserving ¹/³ cup (80ml/2¾ fl oz) of the liquid. Combine the reserved pickling liquid with the oil to make a dressing.
  4. Arrange the radicchio leaves on a serving platter. Top with pickled beetroot and goat’s cheese slices. Scatter walnut clusters over the top and drizzle with the dressing. Serve immediately. Serves 8
