26 Oct Beet, Burrata & Arugula Salad
|Serves 4 to 6|
1 Bunch of fresh beets
The Greens & Dressing:
1 cup baby arugula
2 ounces burrata
|Preheat oven to 400°F|
Remove any wisps on the beets and scrub the beets. Alternatively, simply peel the beets. Cut the beets in half and then slice them to a thickness of ⅓ to ½ inch. Toss the beets in a roasting dish with olive oil and salt to taste. The baking time is between 40 to 50 minutes or until the beets are tender. Remove the beets from the oven and allow them to cool fully.
Once cool, arrange the beets on a plate with burrata pieces. Place the arugula in a bowl. In a small bowl use a whisk to mix the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the arugula and gently toss until the greens are coated.
Now, top the beets with the arugula and serve.
