Ingredients

  • 16 oz can beets (make them fresh if you like, but canned is fine), chopped in 1/2" dice
  • 5 cups fresh arugula
  • 1 cup chopped radicchio
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup avocado chopped in 1/2" dice
  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese, coarsely crumbled
  • 1/2 cup vinagrette dressing of your choice (olive oil, mustard, shallots, balsamic vinegar and honey would work IMHO)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped herbs -- fennel tops, celery tops, basil or tarragon would be delicious

Instructions

Toss the beets, walnuts, cranberries and vinagrette dressing in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, season the arugula with salt and pepper to taste. Add in the beets, walnuts, cranberry and vinaigrette mixture and toss lightly. You may divide these individually into bowls or serve family style in a large bowl. Either way, sprinkle the top with goat cheese and avoacado crumbles. Top with finely chopped herbs of your choice.
