ROASTED BEET SALAD

it’s finally feeling like fall around here and we’re capitalizing on it by eating all of our favorite fall foods! my love for roasted vegetables knows no end and that includes roasted beets. i think the beet is often misunderstood or overlooked but i love them. especially when roasted with a bit of oil and salt and paired with caramelized nuts, creamy cheese and a slightly spicy green like arugula! this salad comes together quickly and is satisfying and hearty enough to be an entree. hope you like it! – joanie

what you’ll need:
• 6 beets (red or golden) – peeled and cut into quarters.
• 4-6 cups arugula – washed and dried
• 1/2 cup goat cheese
• 1/2 candied nuts (pecans or walnuts).
• 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup
• 1/4 cup avocado oil

• preheat your oven to 400 degrees. put chopped beets on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and salt. toss until evenly coated and bake for 35-40 minutes; or until tender when poked with a fork. you want them tender! do not undercook them.

• to make the dressing, mix together the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and avocado oil. salt to taste. put in a container and shake really well before serving so it doesn’t separate.

•put the arugula in a bowl, top with the beets, cheese and candied nuts. serve with a side of toasted bread and a few slices of pair as a garnish. put the dressing on right before your ready to serve, enjoy!
