Beet Salad

Don't wear white when you're working with red beets! But eat beets because it’s the vegetables with deep colors that have the most antioxidants. Beets have anti-aging benefits and can protect your immune system, liver, memory, heart, and urinary tract. - Jenny Jones

    Jenny have you used the yellow beet sometimes to mix in with the red. I think the yellow beet has less flavor than red, but may look pretty here. The flavor might be diminished though. Just a thought.

    Hi Jenny,
    What a great tasting super healthy beet salad, yummy ! I also really love boiled, sliced beets tossed in a bit of sour cream . I must have got the idea to do this because I always put a dollop of sour cream in my bowel of borscht . Thanks for sharing !
