I love roasted beets...they get particulary earthy and sweet. I can't wait for the beets in my gardent to get big enough to pick to make this very simple yet flavor-packed salad this year.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse and peel beets and slice into wedges. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with Salt and pepper.
  2. Wrap the beets in aluminum foil. Place them directly on the center rack and bake about 25-30 until tender when pierced and slightly carmelized. Reserve the juices in the bottom of the foil.
  3. Rinse and dry the arugula. Cut the leaves into strips.
  4. Make the vinaigrette:
  5. Add the olive oil, vinegar, orange zest, salt and pepper to the beet juice and whisk well.
  6. Place the arugula in a frying pan, on medium heat with the additional olive oil. Stir in the warm oil till just wilted (about 2 - 3 minutes)
  7. Combine the beets, onion, arugula and dressing in a large bowl and toss.

Enjoyed the dressing very much although I did not add the entire amount of beet juice! Added some goat cheese and my hubby actually said that was his favorite part.
