Salad Savvy: Arugula, Beet, and Goat Cheese Salad

I heart avocados. It's ironic because I despised them as a child, which of course was when my family lived in Southern California and had an enormous avocado tree growing in our backyard.

I was thrilled to discover this recipe to use up the remaining avocados in my pantry. Arugula, Beet, and Goat Cheese salad with fresh avocado, ala my fave Food Network gal, Giada DiLaurentiis. It was delicious and nutritious! Of course, my bf isn't a big fan of beets, but I keep reminding him they are chock full of vitamins and very good for you!

Word to the wise: the arugula doesn't hold up well if you're planning on taking this for lunch the next day. If you have leftovers, my advice is: pack up the beets, avocados, and goat cheese mixture and spread over fresh arugula the following day.

that looks so fresh & yummy. my in-laws have a giant avocado tree in their backyard & gave me a huge bag (cause they don't eat them). i've been packing one a day for snack, but this looks like a fresh alternative!
