Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Orange Vinaigrette is a wonderful salad that is full of amazing flavors. Served on a bed of baby arugula, it's a healthy meal. Also perfect as a small starter salad!
If using arugula greens, spread them out on a plate, or in a salad bowl.
Layer the beets, orange segments, and red onion on top of the greens, if using. Otherwise just layer them without.
Crumble the goat cheese on top.
Dress the salad with a couple of tablespoons of the vinaigrette, or to taste.
Sprinkle the pistachios on top
Add all ingredients to a mason jar with a lid and shake vigorously until well combined.
If you don't have a jar with a lid, put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined.
Taste and adjust salt, if desired.
Beets can be Roasted in a 450 degree (F) oven for about 45 minutes for small-medium size beets (Don't peel. Rub with olive oil before roasting).
Beets can also be Pressure Cooked (see my Instant Pot Beets recipe).
