You Can’t Get Better Than This Arugula Beet Salad

    Making a beet salad is super simple and a great way to make beets the star of the show. It doesn’t take long at all to make, it’s super healthy, and overall a delicious and satiating dish!


    • 3 beets of any color
    • 1 package of arugula
    • 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
    • 1/2 cup of olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
    • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
    • Goat cheese or feta cheese
    • Walnuts or any other type of nut


    1. Begin by rinsing and peeling the beets. If you can, you probably want to use gloves while handling the beets because they can definitely stain your hands.
    2. Then, cut the beets up into quarters, and depending on how big they are, into quarters again. If they’re relatively small, leave them as they are.
    3. Spread the beets on a baking sheet and drizzle over about 2 tablespoons of
      olive oil as well as salt and black pepper.
    4. Roast for 20 minutes at 425 F or until they’re fork-tender.
    5. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the arugula, cheese, and nuts. Toss in the beets when they’re done
    6. Add the balsamic, olive oil, dijon, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a bowl and mix.
    7. Pour over the salad, toss, and enjoy!
