With the holiday season behind us, many are overwhelmed by the thought of cooking and preparing meals (I know I am!). I’ve become somewhat bored of my usual meals and can’t ever seem to think of what to make next. Enter, this incredibly flavorful beet salad. It’s great for a lunch option for those of you working from home (and can be easily packed for lunch at the office!) or would make a nice side paired with a roasted chicken, grilled prawns, or a light pasta dish.
Of course, the beautiful Rise Gardens Chioggia beets and arugula are the stars of the show in this recipe, but let’s not allow the marinated feta to fall behind! You’ll notice that this beet salad doesn’t have a dressing… well, this feta is just so flavorful that a dressing isn’t necessary! I like to add a little bit of the “juices” from the marinade on top of my salad as well. This marinated feta cheese can be made in advance and used on essentially any other dish you’d like. In our house, we love it on top of pasta, pizza, and soups!
