serves 6 with leftovers 

900 grams cooked and peeled beetroot
1 bunch spring onions, sliced on the diagonal
100 grams diced streaky bacon rashers
1 teaspoon olive oil
200 ml tub crème fraîche
2-3 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish, or horseradish sauce from a jar
juice ½ lemon

Cut the beetroot into quarters and toss in a serving bowl with the spring onions. Fry the pancetta or bacon in a little oil until just golden. Remove from the heat and immediately tip over the beetroot. At this point the dish can either be served or chilled. If making ahead, remove 1 hr or so ahead of time.

To serve, mix the crème fraîche with the freshly grated horseradish, lemon juice and seasoning. Taste and adjust to be as fiery as you like. Spoon a little of the dressing over the beetroot and serve the rest on the side.
