Beet Salad with Arugula, Apples and Blue Cheese

Tossed with a light balsamic vinaigrette, this crisp salad is both bold and beautiful.

Ingredients:
4-6 cups arugula greens
1 bunch Chioggia beets, trimmed of green tops
1 Cameo apple, cored and thinly sliced
½ cup blue cheese, crumbled
¾ cup olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place beets in a large roasting pan and pour in ½ cup water. Cover with parchment and foil. Roast until just tender, they should be easily pierced with a knife, about 40 minutes. Peel beets under cool water. Cut in half lengthwise and again in quarters.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic until well combined. Season to taste with salt and ground pepper.

3. In a large serving bowl, combine arugula greens, warm beet slices and apple slices. Toss with about half of the vinaigrette, adding more to taste as desired. Crumble blue cheese over top and serve.
