Life’s Simple Pleasures.
We live for days like these…waking up late to the smell of fresh brewed Kona coffee followed by two hours of surfing perfect, glassy waves sans crowd, then indulging in an easy to make salad with gourmet flavor.
This salad is so simple, yet looks and taste like something you would order at a five star resort or restaurant. Roasted beets mixed with sweet navel oranges tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette and topped with light crumbled feta and walnuts has an impressive presentation and is simply delicious! I could eat this for days.
Roasted Beets and Orange Salad with Feta
Sautee beet greens with garlic, oil and oranges on medium high heat for several minutes until leaves are tender. This is another great side dish with a lovely flavor!
Super Food Ingredient: Beets
- Beets are rich in vitamin C, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus and fiber.
- They are known to be a blood cleanser as they help cell cleansing by increasing the liver’s production of detoxifying enzymes.
- The nutrient that gives beets their ruby red color has anti-cancer properties. The combination of this nutrient, betacyanin and fiber help protect against colon cancer.
- Studies also show beet juice fights the effects of nitrates, chemical preservatives found in processed meats that may cause colon cancer.
