This Beet & Orange Salad is one of those dishes that make you feel like you created something way too fancy to be enjoyed at home. We’ve been missing eating out a lot, and most of what I miss eating is SALADS. Pre-Quarantine I loved getting take out salads from my favorite local restaurants- because honestly fancy salads for ONE are just way too much work. This orange and beet salad is so crips, refreshing and is a nice little change from the spicy, heavy foods we’ve been indulging in. I felt like it was a nourishing treat for my body! If you are a salad lover like me then check out my tandoori chicken caesar pasta salad and my VERY favorite Kale Salad !! They are both salads I’ve been able to convince my entire family to enjoy!
You’ll probably have enough vinaigrette to make two salads- depending on how much of it you use but its easy to whip up and stores well in the fridge for a few days! Feel free to use any herbs if you don’t have mind! Cilantro, basil, parsley, would all work great!
