Good beet salad?

I love beets and I've been craving a good beet salad.

The best version I had so far was at Zelos Pizza in Arcadia of all places. I'm a big fan of their thick, corn meal crust pizzas and try to stop by whenever I'm in the area. A few months ago I saw they had a beet salad on the menu and it was awesome. Generous amount of sliced, roasted beets and lettuce, sprinkled with goat cheese and nuts..

Arcadia's too far to make it a regular stop for me so I'm looking for other options, preferably in the SFV or the Westside.

        delicious beet salad

        1. I had a great beet "tartare" made with dried cherries and candied nuts (walnuts, I think) somewhere in Santa Monica; pretty sure it was Jiraffe. I've replicated it fairly successfully at home on a number of occasions. That was one that really stuck out for me (and I've eaten a lot of beet salads).

            I'm pretty sure that salad is from Jiraffe too, it's great.

          2. I'm not sure if it's on the menu year-round, but a few months back I had a really good roasted beet salad with green apples and a crumbly sharp white cheddar at Animal (of all places)
