Balsamic Beet & Arugula Salad

Beets can be messy, I know. Purple everywhere. But aren’t they delicious? đŸ™‚ This recipe minimizes your “mess” but doesn’t fall short on flavor. You can make a bunch of beets at the beginning of the week and add in the arugula + other salad components each meal to keep it fresh. Great served warm in the winter!
