Directions

  1. Place beet noodles in large bowl. Mix orange juice, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, thyme, mustard and salt until thoroughly combined.
  2. Pour half of the mixture over the beet noodles and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Arrange arugula on a platter or on individual plates. Place the beet noodles over the arugula and garnish with goat cheese and pistachios.
  4. Drizzle with remaining dressing and serve.
Mealthy tip:

If you’re not a fan of raw beets, sauté the beet noodles in a little olive oil over medium heat for 2 minutes until they’re tender-crisp. Let them cool, then toss with dressing. To easily combine dressing ingredients, place them in a glass jar, close the lid and shake until combined. Any leftover dressing can be stored right in the jar.

This is a really earthy salad, but if you like beets you will love this combo! The orange juice, vinegar, and mustard add a really bold, tangy flavor to this salad. The spicy arugula was also a good choice, although not a green choice I would normally pick. I would definitely make this again for lunch or even as a dinner salad and topped with grilled chicken.

This salad is genius!!! I'm in love with the arugula and beet combo! I made my salad with raw beets and feta cheese. The pistachios make a really great addition to round out the flavors. I'd add a few grinds of fresh pepper over the top. Add grilled chicken and you'll have a perfect lunch.
