New Year, new resolutions! If one of yours was to eat healthier, then here’s a recipe to help. Healthy, and delicious!


6 medium beets, scrubbed

6 c. arugula

1 avocado, sliced

4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

1/2 c. chopped toasted walnuts

For the dressing:

1/2 c. extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp. maple syrup

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 200°. Wrap each beet in foil and place on a baking sheet. Roast until tender (you can insert a fork or knife through the foil to test), about 1 hour. Let sit until cool enough to handle, then peel and cut into wedges.

Meanwhile, make vinaigrette: In a jar, shake together olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, and Dijon until fully combined. Season with salt and pepper. 

Place arugula in a large serving bowl and lightly dress with vinaigrette. Top with beets, avocado, goat cheese, and walnuts. Toss gently and add more vinaigrette as needed.
