  • 3 cups chilled roasted or cooked red and/or orange beets (about 1¾ pounds), cubed (see Tip)
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 6 cups fresh arugula
  • 2 cups quartered strawberries
  • 1 ounce goat cheese (chèvre), crumbled
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place beets in a medium bowl (set aside any liquid that may have collected while the beets were refrigerated). For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine any reserved beet liquid, orange juice, oil, kosher salt and pepper; shake well to combine. Pour over beets.
  2. Line a large serving platter with the arugula.
  3. Top arugula with beet-dressing mixture; toss well. Top with the strawberries then with goat cheese. Sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately.
  • Tip: To roast beets, preheat oven to 400°F. Wash and trim beets; pat dry with paper towels. Wrap beets in foil. Roast 1¼ to 1½ hours or until tender. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Unwrap beets. While holding a beet under cool running water, slip off and discard skin; repeat with remaining beets. Place beets in a covered container, chill 1 to 24 hours.
