Arugula Salad with Roasted Beets and Sweet Potatoes

Welcome to healthy recipe Monday brought to you by Fitness For Mommies.


I love arugula.  Is that weird?  But I do and its a great lettuce to have in your arsenal and to know what to do with.  This recipe is a collaboration of sorts of leftovers in my fridge and it turned out so well I had to share! Its so simple too it almost doesn’t even need a recipe!



You take some left over roasted beets and sweet potatoes, arrange over some arugula, then add some pecans, thinly sliced red onion, and goat cheese. Then top the whole thing with lemon shallot vinaigrette. So good and good for you too.  Best of both worlds.
