RECIPE: Beet and Celery Salad

If you’d asked me to make a meal of beet salad 3 years ago, I would’ve told you to ….

you guessed it: “Beat it”.

Now knowing their health benefits (cellular repair, cancer prevention, nutrient packed) I’m trying to work them in my diet where I can.  I’m still perfecting a beet smoothie recipe, so until I do, this is my go to beet recipe:

 

2 Tbsp Olive oil
3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
3 large Beets from, can, jar or vacuum sealed bag, chopped with ~ 1/4 cup of their juice
1 Tbsp Sunflower seeds
2 celery sticks chopped
5 dashes of salt and pepper

I promise, this salad is way better looking and tasting than this photo!

Bon appe-BEET!

And beet-lovers stay tuned, I have another favorite beet salad recipe coming your way…

    My family really eats beets well! I love beets and Balsamic. They just seem made for each other! I can’t wait for the perfected beet smoothie. I try beets in smoothies and juices, and I’m just not fond of them.

    I love beets. 🙂

    But – sesame seeds? Those look like sunflower seeds…

      Hi Gina!
      Yes! They are! Thank you! (my brain less crisp with jet lag when I wrote this!)
      But I supposed you could use any of your favorite seeds, pumpkin, sunflower, flax….

      thanks for paying attention!
