There's a time and place for pickled beets, but I prefer the effects of roasting them. They turn soft and buttery and form a nice backdrop for a salad. The peppery arugula and creamy goat cheese work well with beets and walnuts add the perfect amount of crunch. I served this salad alongside a grilled steak. It was the perfect, fresh side dish.
