Simple, bright, and balanced, this salad pairs perfectly with grilled fish or chicken. To cook the beets in the oven, wrap in foil and bake at 400° for 45 to 50 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Wrap beets individually in microwave-safe parchment paper. Microwave at HIGH 7 minutes or until tender, turning once after 3 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice into 1/2-inch-thick wedges.

Step 2

Combine rind, juice, black pepper, salt, and shallot in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Let stand 10 minutes. Gradually add oil, stirring constantly with a whisk. Place arugula in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons juice mixture to arugula; toss to coat. Add beets to remaining juice mixture; toss to coat. Place arugula mixture on a platter; top with beet mixture, avocado, and feta.

Ratings & Reviews

Tasty, healthy, light summer salad

I made this for a party - it was a great hit! People who normally do not enjoy beets really loved it. I did not have yellow (still growing in garden...) so I used red. Red gives a contrasting/pretty color to the green of the arugula and avocado. Light and Tasty!
