Beet Mushroom Salad

Salads with an element of something warm and freshly cooked are so much more exciting than cold salads. Roasted yellow beets have a mellow sweet flavor and warm earthy mushrooms balance nicely with it and the crunchy arugula adds a peppery touch. The recipe also works well with red beets.
