Roasted Beet Arugula Salad
This salad is tangy, savory and absolutely satisfying. Best of all, all the ingredients are in season right now!
1 cup of thinly sliced beets
1 tablespoon butter (or olive oil)
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic (feel free to add more if you want a stronger garlic flavor)
1/3 cup of walnuts diced
2 tablespoons of goat cheese
2 cups of baby arugula
Saute the beets and garlic with butter or olive oil. In a large mixing bowl mix together the beets, walnuts, cheese and arugula. Add the dressing of your choice. I recommend Lemonette's Lemon Garlic dressing that is sold at Aptos Naturals. Pair this salad with your favorite white wine, and a toasted baguette or crackers and enjoy!
