This simple salad sits up and takes notice. Leafy and peppery arugula has anti-carcinogenic, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Endive is loaded with potassium. And the quick-pickled beets are an antioxidant powerhouse.
bunch of arugula, washed and dried
head of Belgian endive, leaves separated
large beet, peeled and cut into batons
apple cider vinegar
Right. Set the cleaned and dried leaves aside. I wrap them loosely in a damp kitchen cloth and keep them in the fridge till I need them.
In a small bowl mix the vinegar with the sugar and salt and pepper, and drop the raw beet batons into the marinade. Ten minutes are fine, half an hour is better. Turn over every now and then.
