Arugula Beet Salad - Chi Running

Arugula Beet Salad

This was my favorite salad in a restaurant in San Rafael, CA, so Danny copied it for me and, I think, improved it. It’s simple and so delicious!! We make a light meal of it along with some bread.

ChiRunning began to enrich my life on July 3, 2010 when I read the first 100 pages of the book and went for a run, and just focusing on ankle lift made a difference! My running life continues to transform and create joy! I smile when I run and love every minute. I am thrilled and grateful to be part of this ChiRunning community. Thank you for the opportunity to pursue becoming an Instructor.
