This pickled beet salad packs a lot of flavors – fresh tomatoes, earthy beets, peppery arugula, and a sprinkle of feta cheese. It’s great year-round, but the colors are perfect for special holiday meals. I like to serve it as a side, so this recipe makes enough for four people if other side dishes are on the menu.
Look for jars of pickled beets near the other pickles in the grocery store. I like to buy Aunt Nellie’s brand – the beets are already sliced and just need to be halved for the salad.
Substitutions: Use other greens like spinach or butter lettuce. You can also swap the feta for crumbled goat cheese.
