Beet Noodle Salad with Goat Cheese

Beets are a scary ingredient. For starters, red beets stain everything and anything in their path — your counters, wooden cutting boards, kitchen towels and hands.

When dealing with juicy beets, it’s important to prepare for a mess. Have paper towels and un-stainable surfaces ready. Given their shape, beets are also tricky to peel and prep for the spiralizer. Use caution and be patient.

Here is what you’ll need…


  • 3 raw beets, spiralized
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups baby spinach or arugula, chopped
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • ½ cup toasted nuts (pine nuts, pepitas, almonds, or pistachios work well)
