This salad may be quick and simple to make, but it’s filled with powerhouse ingredients that pack a flavor punch and add vibrant color. Together, this mix makes 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® Ready to Serve Multi-Grain Medley made with a blend of brown rice, flaxseed, red quinoa and chia seeds. 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!
Beets add a sweet touch to your meal and are packed with antioxidants. Pickled beets are a convenient alternative to using fresh beets and are easy to store in the fridge for more rice salads or rice bowls throughout the week.
