Salad Dressing Recipes: Top 50 Most Delicious Homemade Salad DressingsCooked beets add a healthy, colorful boost to any salad. Make sure to avoid pickled beets, as they would overpower the other flavors in the dish.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes


  • 2 handfuls of arugula
  • 6 large ready-cooked beets, roughly chopped
  • 6 oz (175 g) semihard goat cheese, sliced
  • handful of shelled pistachios, roughly chopped
For the dressing
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp whole-grain mustard
  • pinch of sugar
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
  1. To make the dressing, place the oil, vinegar, and shallots in a small bowl, and whisk together thoroughly. Add the mustard and sugar, and season well with salt and black pepper. Whisk again, then taste. Season again as needed but remember to let the dressing stand for a while first, to develop the flavors.
  2. Arrange the arugula on a large serving plate or 4 individual plates, then top with the beets and goat cheese. Drizzle with a little of the dressing, then sprinkle over the pistachios. Add more dressing, if you wish.
