Just might be the best salad EVER

OK a short post about my lunch salad.  Oh my gosh - not only is it totally delish - it is also beautiful.  The secret ingrediant is from last weeks CSA box and something I have to admit I have never tried before - but I am now sold on . . . .beets.  Beautiful, sweet flavored, fushia colored beets.  It was a pretty simple salad, with a couple different types of lettuce, compliments of the CSA box, cucumber, yellow and orange peppers, blueberries and shredded beets - all tossed with a little pomegranate balsamic vinegar. 
Take a look at this - it is almost too pretty to eat.  Almost - NOT.  I am being extremely careful to not spill any on my clothes - that would be a mess. 

Back to finishing my lunch.




  1. Love beets...I also only started eating them like last year :)

    Beautiful looking salad and love the new look of your blog :)

  2. YUM! Although I have to admit, I've never tried beets before :)

  3. I just got beets from my CSA yesterday. No clue how to prepare them. Any tips?

  4. Beth - I just emailed you with a link to a beet recipe that I was going to try - but now I don't have enough beets left. But I LOVED the shredded beets on my salad. It was yummy.
