Ingredients

*****PRODUCE*****

1 bag arugula salad

1 1/2 pounds beets, peels on, greens removed, scrubbed clean

1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (optional, can substitute red raspberries or skip)

1 small white onion, finely sliced (about 1/2 cup)

1/2 cup leaves from the center of 1 head of celery

1 tablespoon finely minced shallot (about 1 small)

*****DAIRY, CHEESE & EGGS*****

4 ounces goat cheese

2 to 3 hard-boiled eggs, quartered

*****SPICES*****

Kosher salt (75% of 1/4 tsp worked well)

Black pepper (50% of 1/4 tsp worked well)

*****OTHER*****

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Fold a 12- by 24-inch sheet of aluminum foil in half to form a square. Crimp two edges to form a pouch. Toss beets, vegetable oil, and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl until coated. Add to pouch and crimp remaining edge to seal. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven. Roast until beets are completely tender and a toothpick or cake tester inserted into beet through foil shows little to no resistance, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Combine walnuts, honey, vinegar, and shallots in a medium bowl. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

When beets are cool enough to handle, peel by gently rubbing skin under cold running water. Cut beets into 1 1/2-inch chunks.

Toss arugula, beets, pomegranate, onion, and dressing together in a large bowl. Transfer to a plate. Garnish with goat cheese, boiled eggs, and celery leaves. Serve immediately.
