Harvest several handfuls of arugula and beets. Boil the beets (tops and bottoms removed), just until they’re cooked, but not mushy. Remove from the water and peel.

Mix together equal parts balsamic vinegar and olive oil, with a tablespoon of dijon mustard to make the dressing. Slice the beets and layer them over the arugula. Sprinkle in little bits of goat cheese.
