Beet Arugula Salad with Cashews

cashew beet saladMy sister and I went out to lunch with our dad on father’s day.  Because we’re so broke he actually took us out.  We had this amazing beet salad.  We decided to make our own version of it at home.

Taras beet saladYou don’t need a recipe for this.  We steamed some cubed peeled beets.  We chopped up some lightly toasted cashews.  The salad we had at The Lark Creek Tavern had pistachios on it but those are expensive and we didn’t have any.  Easy sub to make.

cashew beet salad 3So you put a bed of arugula on each plate.  Put about a half a cup of beets.  Then crumble some feta over it.  Or not.  This salad is just as good without cheese.  Then you sprinkle chopped cashews over it.  Slice up an avocado and put about a quarter of one on each plate.  Unless the avocado is tiny.  Then use half.  Or not.  Then dress with vinaigrette.  Or whatever you like.  We used my standard mustard vinaigrette.

My sister plated this and I think she did an awesome job!
