Cook the beets skin on in boiling water until fork tender. Drain well and chill, remove the skin and cut in half or into 1 ½” pieces.

Place pieces in a large mixing bowl with the beets and toss well with the lemon pistachio vinaigrette. Divide the tomatoes and beets on 6 plates making sure to leave some of the dressing still in the bowl. Place the arugula into the same mixing bowl and toss well with the remaining vinaigrette.
