The flavors in this salad, with its peppery arugula, sweet orange, and earthy roasted beets, are all it needs; no dressing required.

Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds for a delicious and flavorful salad that begs for nothing but a plate and a fork.

10 - 12 ounces arugula
1 orange, peeled, sectioned, and diced
1 roasted beet, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Rinse the arugula and pat dry or use a Salad Spinner to remove the excess water. Place the arugula into a salad bowl, clear preferably for a beautiful, colorful presentation. Add the orange slices and beets, and toss gently.

Meanwhile, in a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds while continuously stirring, 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned.

Sprinkle sesame seeds over the salad and serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers.
