Instructions

Another Beet Recipe . . . because beets are sooooo good for you 😉

Boil or bake the beets.  To boil, place beets and caraway seeds in water and boil for 30-40 minutes.  Or bake approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees. When cool enough to handle, slip of skins and cube.

Mix together oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper pour over the beet mixture and let marinate for half an hour.

Arrange the greens on a large bowl or plate, add the marinated beets and walnuts. Toss gently and drizzle the remaining vinaigrette over it. 

Notes:

Find high quality extra virgin olive oil here.

In South Central PA, you can find organic veggies here.

High quality salts, herbs, spices, seeds and nuts can be found here.

Nuts.com has very nice organic nuts but they also sell a lot of junk food I do not support. Therefore the only food I buy from them are their organic nuts and seeds.
