Sunday Salads: Pickled Beet, Goat Cheese Arugula Salad with Beet Vinaigrette
Beets. Most people love them or hate them. I am in the first category. My husband is in the latter. They might seem a little odd to place on a salad but I would venture to guess that many of you have had them in your CSA boxes recently and you might just be looking for a new way to serve them!
So I give to you Pickled Beet, Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad. The flavor combination’s make this anything but an ordinary salad. The strong flavors of goat cheese and arugula balance out the sweet and tangy flavor of the pickled beets. This wasn’t exactly a salad my toddlers were clamoring for, but I was fine with that, more for me! And I like my fancy salads. Hopefully you will to.
