EASY Arugula, APPLE, BEET SALAD RECIPE
This Arugula, Apple, Beet Salad is a very easy salad to make with pre-packaged arugula or a mix of arugula and spinach.
If you find beets pre-cooked at the store, it's even easier. I used these Love Beets from Costco that come already boiled, and air sealed in a package of 4 pouches, so this is great to keep around for weeks.
Just open one and the rest have a long shelf life. Beets are great to use; not only for enhancing your salads but adding pizzaz/oomph to your soups, hummus (just add one with some mint and spices) and to your berry smoothies!

You can enjoy this beautiful salad all year round. All you need to do is chop the beets and apple, toss them into a bowl with the arugula and/or spinach and whisk together your dressing.
Top with some brain boosting, omega-rich walnuts for a nice crunch, and you have a delicious, sweet n tangy salad that’s so fresh, full of flavor and extremely satisfying. Not to mention visually beautiful.
I think beets in anything make a dish more appetizing. Beets are so good for you, and because they are so red, they contain powerful blood purifying components which are so important for a properly functioning immune system.
If nuts are an allergen for you, you can always replace with high fiber, mineral-rich sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or omega rich hempseeds.
