For the dressing:

For the salad

  • 100 g walnut halves, roughly broken
  • 250 g ready cooked spelt, cooled

  • large bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves very roughly chopped
  • 200 g soft goats’ cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 3-4 medium cooked beetroot, not in vinegar, quartered         


1. For the dressing: Mix the mustard and vinegar together in a small bowl. Add the honey and stir well. Gradually add the olive oil, stirring vigorously until emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2. For the salad: Toast the walnuts lightly in a frying pan over a low heat, turning often. Put the spelt in a bowl and stir in half the dressing. Add the onion and parsley and season with ground black pepper. Divide between four plates and top with the goats’ cheese and beetroot.
