Spinach and warm roasted beet salad

I found spinach at a great price the other day and also had beets and walnuts on hand. (What? You don't keep beets on hand?) A salad sounded good, but I was already so cold from the snow... so a little improv on the beets to cut the chill.

3 large handfuls spinach, rinsed
1-2 beets, roasted or boiled, then peeled and diced
goat cheese
lemon vinaigrette (not too much)
freshly ground pepper

Warm the beets slightly in the microwave - not hot, just a little warmer than room temperature. Toss the spinach with a little vinaigrette, then top with beets, walnuts, goat cheese and pepper.
