To make the dressing, mix the ricotta, lime zest, half the lime juice and the horseradish sauce in a bowl, then stir in the diced cucumber. Add the chicken to the bowl with the cannellini beans. Mix lightly to combine the chicken and beans with the dressing.
Toss the salad leaves with the onion and remaining lime juice, then spread on a large shallow serving platter, reserving a few pretty leaves for garnishing. Pile the chicken and bean mixture on top, then scatter with the beetroot and reserved leaves. Garnish with lime wedges and serve immediately.
For a vegetarian salad, omit the chicken and add 2 peeled, stoned and diced avocados. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds before serving.
