Beet Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette



Next week I will be in school! Just in case you didn’t know, I Jennifurla program phone systems for a living. Straight out of high school I joined the Navy and became an Interior Communications Electrician (fancy huh?). I spent my days running cable and *trying* to fix the Mark19 Gyrocompass…look it up you will be impressed. After 5 years of that I made my way into the real world and began programming phone systems for a few major companies, and here I am today doing the same thing. So this coming week will be spent learning even more technical stuff to hopefully get me moving on up in the next few years.

So speaking of the Gyrocompass, I made this salad for a non cooking night we had at my house this week….nice segway I know! Ha



INGREDIENTS (eyeball it to your liking)

Arugula
Beets, sliced
Gorgonzola
Walnuts
Champagne Vinaigrette (found this near the pre-packaged salads – also check the aisle with all dressings…or make your own)

DIRECTIONS

Toss all the ingredients together & Chow down….like I have to tell you!



Have a great weekend all, I will be baking for sure and hope everyone else can do the same.

I have recently discovered the nummyness of beets. In fact, I have a few dozen growing out in the garden right now. The question is, will I still own this house when they're ready to harvest? ;)

What a delightful salad! Perhaps I will get beets in my CSA box this week and then I can make this. :-)
