Reviewed Beet and Goat Cheese Arugula Salad

Jul 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've never grown beets before in my garden and was looking for "roasted" instead of "pickled" recipes -- and I LOVE salad -- so this sounded intriguing!! When I try a recipe, I always want to try it EXACTLY as written.The only thing that I think that I would change is to add some garlic to the vinaigrette. But it was lovely and light. . . . . . . "

These were super simple to make and quite tasty. Decided to add these to Christmas dinner this year -- one of our guests ate 4 of the bundles!! They went really well with the ham. Will make again!!"

I, too, decided to make this for Thanksgiving after watching Paula Deen make it. I couldn't find frozen cranberries, so I used fresh. My husband and I aren't even dessert people and we kept eating it!! Told my daughter to "take THAT THING with you"!! She was more than happy to oblige. It was scrumptious!! "

I really LOVED this!! I love Italian food -- my husband does not, but he actually liked this. I think that he was surprised at how tasty the eggplant was. I, too, found it necessary to "garlic up" the crushed tomatoes!!"

Super simple and although I liked it, my husband wasn't "wowed" by it. I think the pea puree wasn't a big hit with him. But after reading the review below, I will modify it next time, Going to try it again though!"

Was looking for a healthy alternative for my husband, who LOVES burgers. Found this under the "Healthy" category. I was so pleased with the results!! The fresh pickle and onion mixture was wonderful. I loved the flavor of the burger as well. What surprised me the most was how YUMMY the yogurt sauce was (now a favorite condiment for dipping veggies"
