Beet and Watermelon Salad

This refreshing and mouth watering salad contains nature’s electrolytes.  Both beets and watermelon is a good source of potassium.  In addition watermelon is packed with vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and contains antioxidants.

  • 1 large or 2 medium golden beets.  (Red beets works well too, however I prefer the color contrast of the golden beets.  You can even find cooked beets in some grocery stores, like Trader Joe’s)
  • unseeded/seedless watermelon, cubed
  • arugula
  • crumbled goat cheese
  • cherry balsamic vinegar
  • extra virgin olive oil

Wrap beets individually in heavy duty aluminum foil and roast beets for 45-60 mins in oven 400F depending on size.  Allow to cool.  The skin should peel off easily.  Cut the beets and watermelon and add to arugula.  Sprinkle with goal cheese, a touch of olive oil and a cherry balsamic vinegar.
