Goat cheese, arugula, beets, pistachios, quinoa. What more could you ask for really?

Arugula and Beet Salad

4 cups of arugula

3 roasted beets cut into quarters ( I used Trader Joe’s pre-roasted…)

1/4 cup of crumbled goat cheese

1/4 cup golden raisins (didn’t do this, but would be soo good)

1/4 cup toasted pistachios

1/4 cup of cooked quinoa

Dressing:

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

3 tbsp olive oil

a good amount of salt and pepper

Zest of 1/2 a lemon (I’ve been zesting a lot lately, adds such great flavor without too much acidity)

1 tbsp honey

Mix arugula, beets, quinoa, goat cheese, raisins, pistachios and toss with dressing.
