Beetroot salsa with Feta on rye toast

Put a spin on the classic comfort snack cheese on toast with a few artisan ingredients that can really take it up a notch.

The smooth, creamy feta goes beautifully with the bite of the beetroot and is ready in less than 10 minutes – perfect for a quick snack or a light lunch.

This recipe calls for juniperberry & black pepper-infused beetroot, but there are dozens of other ready-to-eat flavours available from the big supermarkets – try the pomegranate and cumin beetroot from Waitrose of the Sweetfire baby beetroot from Tesco for a different take on this easy recipe.
