This salad is such a nice combination of flavors, the arugula adds a little peppery taste, the beets are sweet and the pepitas add great texture. Here’s the challenge with this salad, try to get all components into every single bite! It will be the best bit of salad you have ever tasted!
6 cups arugula
1 small, 3 oz log goat cheese
4 small beets peeled and steamed (you can find these pre-steamed and peeled at your local Trader joes or supermarket)
1 small avocado, sliced horizontally
2 tablespoons pepitas (Raw pumpkin seeds)
First and most importantly, use a teaspoon to scoop small pieces of goat cheese and roll into balls with your hands until you have about 10 cheese balls. Keep rolling until cheese balls look smooth. Set aside.
Slice beets and avocado into thin slices. Place arugula in a large bowl, dress with your favorite vinaigrette or simply olive oil and balsamic, toss to coat all leaves.
Assemble arugula leaves on a serving platter, shingle beets and avocado in altering layers on top of leaves. Sprinkle with goat cheese balls and pepitas.
Voila! Easy, healthy and delicious too!
