This is one of my favorite salads! I love the combination of the beets and cheese, along with the crunch of the nuts. I’ve also substituted Gorgonzola cheese and chopped almonds for the goat cheese and walnuts. When I have the time, I roast fresh beets, but always good to have a quick, already prepared option, which I’ve included here.
Arugula is antioxidant-rich with vitamins A, C and K, and is also a good source of the B vitamin folate. Beets are a good source of potassium, folate and fiber. Walnuts are also rich in antioxidants and provide healthy omega 3 fats, making this a salad that’s good for your heart!
