BEET AND ARUGULA SALAD WITH GOAT CHEESE AND MAPLE BALSAMIC DRESSING

 

2 large beets

½ cup pine nuts

2 tsp. olive oil

5 oz. baby arugula leaves

8 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

 

Dressing:

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

 

Cut the leaves off the beets , leaving a 1 in stem.  Place beets in a medium sauce pan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat and cook until the beets are tender when pierced with a fork, about 40-45 minutes depending on size.  Peel beets with your hands under cold running water.  The skin and stem should come easily.  Chop into 1” dice and set aside.

 

Toast pine nuts in olive oil over medium heat until light browned.

 

Place all dressing ingredients in a small jar and shake vigorously until emulsified.

 

Combine beets, arugula, pine nuts, and goat cheese in a large bowl.  Toss with dressing and enjoy.  Any extra dressing will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
