Spring salad with baked beetroot, goat's cheese, oranges and hearty granola

A recipe, a recipe! The first weekend in a long time, where I can once again work in the kitchen and tinker with recipes for the blog. I missed that. Even if it's just a salad. But what a!
And, that's not quite right. It's not that I have not been in my kitchen in the last few weeks. Actually, I was on the weekends from morning to night and also in the week after work in my kitchen. But not for the blog. Because I did it again! Cookbook number 3 is in the making! Bam, now it's out. The recipe development is complete, the photos are all in the box, now it's just about the finishing touches and in a few weeks I can officially reveal what it's about.

Spring salad with baked beetroot, goat cream cheese, oranges and hearty granola

Anyway, now I have time for the blog and the first nice spring weekend used and finally started to implement the things that have been buzzing around my mind for a while. Now that the range of regional products is rising again, you can discover the first asparagus and rhubarb at the weekly market and you can buy again radishes, colorful beets and all the beautiful spring vegetables. So what could be better than a delicious transitional salad, which represents the last remainder of winter in the form of oranges and at the same time offers the first beetroot and young lettuce leaves as spring messengers. The whole thing is not only refined with goat cream cheese, but also with a hearty granola topping. I discovered the recipe for this combination last summer in the Australian Taste Magazin and now I finally come to try it.

The granola topping is a hearty version of the crunchy muesli that you know so well. I find it incredibly exciting to spice up salads or soups with crunch. The recipe for the granola we made at the last chefs workshop on MÜSLI as a topping for a soup. Try it out. Airtight, the granola also keeps a few days. Spring can come!
