Vibrant Ingredients

This salad may be quick and simple to make, but it’s filled with powerhouse ingredients that pack a flavor punch and are bursting with vibrant color. Together, they make for one appetizing dish!

Fresh arugula and creamy avocado add a touch of green, while pickled beets add a splash of deep ruby red. White feta cheese and ranch dressing bring everything together.

Though arugula adds great flavor here, you can swap in spinach or a pre-packaged kale mix. Use what you have on hand and make this recipe work for you. You can also swap in goat cheese for the feta, if desired.

To make this salad light but filling, use our Minute®  Multi-Grain Medley Rice Cups made with a blend of brown rice, flaxseed and red quinoa . You can also double this salad by heating up two perfectly portioned rice cups. This dish is a perfect meal for one or a great side dish to share!

Using Pickled Beets
