Winter in California is the season for arugula, along with many other lettuces. A few years ago we planted some in our garden and now each year the arugula re-seeds itself and takes over with a flourish, starting in December. Arugula was popularized a few years ago as a central component of California cuisine. For those unfamiliar with it, it tastes a lot like watercress - peppery and slightly bitter. In this recipe the goat cheese mellows the pepperiness of the arugula, while the beets offer a sweet contrast to its bitter quality. Chopped walnuts add a little more texture to the salad.

Recipe Ingredients for Arugula salad with beets and goat cheese

6 Beets
2 cups Fresh arugula - rinsed, patted dry with a paper towel
1/4 cup cheese, goat, fresh
2 tblsp Walnuts - chopped
1/4 cup Olive oil
2 tblsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground mustard
3/4 tsp Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Arugula salad with beets and goat cheese

  1. The amount of ingredients depends on how many people you are serving and how much salad you intend to serve them. The important thing is that this is a good blend of flavors. I didn't try tossing this salad; each plate was composed individually.

  2. The dressing for three individual salads was 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 lemon, 1/4 teaspoon of powdered mustard, 3/4 teaspoon of sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Actually, it is all to taste. These are only approximate measurements.

  3. Assemble the salad according to how much you want. A handful of arugula leaves, a few beet juliennes, some crumbled goat cheese, garnish with chopped walnuts. Use a vinaigrette salad dressing or what I've described above.
