Beet and Goat Cheese Arugula Salad Recipe

Beet and Goat Cheese Arugula Salad is popular in our home during fall, because it reminds us of the harvest season, filled with fresh crop. Beets add a bright flavor of sweetness to the salad that you will love. And the extra flavor of cranberries makes this the ideal recipe for Thanksgiving.

How do you make the Beet and Goat Cheese Salad?

  • Prepare the ingredients for the salad ahead of time. This salad pairs best with this Beet Salad Dressing (click to see).
  • You can make beets at home by roasting or by boiling them. They can be refrigerated for several days.
  • You can combine all ingredients ahead of time, but only add salad dressing right before serving.

What's the difference between Feta and Goat Cheese?

It's true that feta can be made from goat milk, but feta is not the same as goat cheese. Feta cheese will have more texture and tangy flavor, while the goat cheese is milder in taste and more creamy in texture. You can, however, substitute goat cheese with feta.
