Besides helping people achieve financial security through homeownership, I’d like to share another one of my passions with you – Cooking!

Justin’s Beet and Arugula Salad

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 medium beets
  • 6 cups fresh arugula
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 3 ounces goat cheese or feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

Line a baking sheet with foil. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Whisk the vinegar, shallots, and honey in a medium bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in the oil. Season the vinaigrette, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Trim and wash beets.  Toss the beets in a small bowl with a few tablespoons of the vinaigrette, enough to coat them. Place the beets on the prepared baking sheet and roast until the beets are cooked, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Set aside and cool.  Peel and slice beets.

Toss the arugula, walnuts, and cranberries in a large bowl with enough vinaigrette to coat.  Arrange the beets around the salad. Sprinkle with the avocado and cheese.  Enjoy!

I hope your family enjoys this recipe! If you are looking for home-planning (or cooking) advice, I would be happy to be a resource!
