I'm serving beef stroganoff tonight and have a bag of arugula. Anyone have any good ideas for a homemade dressing and what else to add to the salad?

With arugula, I like to keep it simple: mustard vinaigrette (tsp dijon, some minced shallot or onion, tablespoon vinegar of your choice, 3 T olive oil, perhaps some grated fresh garlic, S&P). Toasted almonds, raw shaved fennel, roasted broccoli, shaved parmesan ...all are nice, optional, additions.
Beef Stroganoff - a recipe from Russia. I would add some chopped pickled red beets to the arugula and serve it with a light sour cream dressing (sour cream, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper).

Beets definitely! Roasted, sliced and topped with fresh grated horseradish. However I wouldn't duplicate the sour cream which is already in the stroganoff.
Keep it light with the rich creamy stroganoff...you'll be fine with something simple and clean.A finely sliced cabbage/radish/onion/carrott/raisin mixture would offset some of the great main course you have planned. Use a sweeter oil dressing to avoid conflict with your creaminess in the Stroganoff.

It is probably too late, but a mixture of different colored beets served as Pierino suggests would look stunning.
Thanks everyone! I went with the light salad and it was delicious. Can't wait to try some of the ones with beets though!
