  • 8 ounces beets, without tops (3 small)
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Trim root ends from beets. Wrap each beet in foil and place in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Bake 1 hour or until tender. Remove from foil; cool 15 minutes. Remove skins by wrapping beets, one at a time, in a paper towel and gently rubbing off the skins. Cut beets into bite-size pieces; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, for dressing, whisk together vinegar, oil, mustard, pepper and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Toss arugula in a serving dish with half of the dressing. Top with beets and pears; drizzle with the remaining dressing. Sprinkle with cheese and almonds.
