If you're a beet fanatic like myself, give this recipe a try. It is one of my very favorites!
6 red beets
Feta cheese - crumbled
Candied walnuts (or toasted almonds)
3 tablespoons orange joice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
a pinch of salt & pepper
To make dressing - mix all ingredients together and shake (I love my salad dressing shaker)
To cook beets - preheat oven to 350º. Place beets in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour or until tender when pierced with a fork. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin. (If it doesn't peel off easy, use a carrot/potato peeler.) Slice the beets into bite-sized pieces.
To assemble - put a few handfuls on arugula on each plate. Add cooked, sliced beets, sprinkle with feta cheese and candied walnuts and drizzle with dressing.
