This fresh and tasty salad is perfect if you’re looking for a light, healthy carb-up option. Roasting the beetroot in a touch of apple cider vinegar gives a subtle tang that really complements the natural sweetness of the beetroot.

The creamy goats cheese and heart healthy avocado against peppery watercress makes this keto salad one you’ll revisit time and time again.

I love this goat's cheese and beetroot salad if I’m exercising or need a few more carbs to up my energy levels. I hope you enjoy it too.
