Beetroot and feta salad

These are strange and startling times we live in. If you told me last year I would be arrested for fighting over the last package of feta cheese at my local supermarket I would have had a good chuckle.

I used the Minimalist Baker’s recipe and added some amazing sea salt corn chips as my […]
