You need for a salad for four people:

4 cooked beetroot
1 grapefruit
2 oranges
75 grams of walnuts
100 grams of goat cheese in little pieces
3 spring onions
2 shallots
6 tablespoons Cranberry vinegar
6 tablespoons of olive oil
Freshly ground salt and pepper

First cut the beetroot into cubes and put them in a bowl (if there is still a scallop around the beetroot, get rid of it first). Then peel the grapefruit and orange, and cut into pieces. Remove the hard pieces and possible seeds from the fruit and add them to the beetroot. Then, in a bowl, make a dressing of the olive oil and cranberry vinegar, the salt and pepper. Pour the dressing with the salad and mix everything together. Sprinkle chunks of goat cheese over the salad. Chop the walnuts into small but not too small pieces and sprinkle them too. Put the salad in the refrigerator until use. Finish off by sprinkling small rings of spring onions over the salad before serving.
