This was a lovely salad, Kate! I'd have never paired beets and goats cheese before, and with the pine nuts and simple dressing - wow! I used golden beets, which were delicious, and the added bonus was that DH, who won't eat beets, didn't recognize them and said they were really good before I told him! ;) The rocket (arugula round here, looked pretty sad, so I used baby greens - which I'm sure had some arugula in them anyways. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
