We went out to eat and they had this salad on the menu. I ordered it asking the chef not to use Goat Cheese because I didn't like it. I asked if he would put Feda Cheese on instead. Well he kindly did and I love this salad; so a couple of day later I thought I'd try to copy it and sure enough it came out really good. I used spinach instead of arugula the second time I made it. Using the low fat ingredients didn't change the taste at all.I like using fresh veg's instead of canned when ever I can get them. I love beets any way you can make them. Talked to the chef for calories count. Nice man!
