Let’s be honest, salads can taste repetitive. Today, Paul Lillakas gives us the tips for making the fanciest winter salad at home.



  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Drizzle beets and onions with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange into a single layer.
  5. Bake until beets are caramelized and tender, about 45 minutes.
  6. In a bowl, whisk cheese and water until smooth and creamy. Add extra water, 1 tbsp at a time, if needed.
  7. Plating: On platter (or individual plates) slather cheese mixture almost to edges, top with beets, onions, arugula and walnuts. Drizzle with extra olive oil.
