Heart Beet Salad

It’s super important to fill your body with delicious and healthy food when you can. I love salads because I can mix and match whatever I want. Here is a simple salad that I made last night!

(Put it all on a bed of lettuce and add some goat cheese crumbles)

Make sure you dress with a vinagrette, I made a lime ginger basil which was super simple and very delicious!

  1. I will try this one. I just picked fresh beets at the organic farm here and lettuce. How didu make your dressing?

    • I took a clove of garlic and a piece of ginger and blended it in a food processor. Then added 1/3 cup of lime juice, 1/3 cup honey, 2 tsp of balsamic vinegar, 4 basil leaves, and some salt and blended that. Then I added enough olive oil to make it thick enough to be a dressing. It was super good!
