1 - 2 whole beets
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 small apples
2 T of Nuts (your favorite kind!) ( I put chopped walnuts and flaxseeds)
1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil (good quality!)
1 T Raspberry Vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 clove minced garlic
Begin by steaming beets and cut them into wedges for easier eating. Here is a good website on how to cook beets:
Peel, section and cut the orange.
Place the beets, orange sections and chopped apples on top of the shredded greens.
Whisk together all the ingredients of the salad dressing and pour over the salad bowl
Top with the nuts and seeds.
Note: I usually buy a bunch of the beets. You can use the beet greens in the salad or use it to make chutney/pesto. I suggest steaming all the beets and cutting and storing the leftovers. I take out the beets and put it on the table with the next meal. One extra vegetable exposure for the kids and the family!
