Star Sukkot Salad
4 cups arugula
1 large beet, baked and cooled, or 1 jar or can of beets, sliced or cut into fun shapes
1 Asian pear, diced or cut into fun shapes
½ to 1 cup pecans
¼ to ½ cup pomegranate seeds
Cover bottom of your serving bowl with greens. Cut your beets and Asian pear. You can buy beets cut into matchsticks, disks or little baby balls. You can also use a fresh baked beet. I suggest cutting them into fun shapes using fruit and veggie cutters. You can make stars and hearts or fall shapes like apples and pumpkins. Top greens with the rest of the ingredients. Use salad dressing of your choice. I used a homemade lemon garlic vinaigrette.
BeTeavon and ENJOY!
