Can't enough of this simple but delicious Salad. Colourful, fresh & healthy. What more do you want in a salad (:
2 heaping cups lettuce blend; torn if necessary
1/2 cup diced roast beets*
1/2 medium-large orange (roughly chopped, use all juices too)
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 medium-large avocado; diced
2 teaspoons toasted pepitas
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Arrange the lettuce on a medium-sized plate or bowl.
In another medium-sized bowl, add the diced beet, orange with juices, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Gently toss.
Spoon the dressed beet and orange mixture over the lettuce.
Top with the avocado and pepitas.
Season with salt and pepper. *To roast beets, place directly on the middle rack of a 425 degree oven. Roast until a knife inserted in the center meets little resistance.
