Arugula Salad

Arugula Salad | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

This arugula salad is simple, healthy, and delicious—three things that I love about most salads. In fact, salads tend to be so simple that I don’t post recipes for them, but sometimes we need to be reminded to add foods to our salads that we might not normally eat, such as beets.

If fresh beets are not available or you simply don’t want to bother with cooking them, canned beets work just fine. Beets add color and flavor to this salad while the avocado adds healthy fat.

While I’m not a huge fan of beets, I don’t hate them. I find that in this salad, the flavors are nicely balanced and the beets are not overpowering. Of course, you can  adjust the amounts of the different  ingredients to your liking.

  2. I have tried to like beets but I’m not sure even the delicious avocado, egg and arugula could make them palatable! However, I may give it the ‘ol college try. The salad looks amazing even with the beets!

  3. Sounds delicious! I actually *do* love beets and I like to add them to my salads… when I remember!

  4. I do eat beets even though they are not my favorite foods. I bet I would like them in a salad such as this. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Looks delicious! I don’t like beets so much but cooking it may be better. I’ll try this next. Thanks!
