Pistachio & Beet Salad

Fresh sweet beets, in a light dressing, are tossed with tangy cheese for a great tasting side dish. Pistachios boost the flavor, add a much needed ‘crunch’ to balance out the softness of the beets, as well they give a beautiful contrasting color to make this salad look as beautiful as it tastes.

PistachioBeetSalad1Boil or roast beets until tender, remove skins. Coarsely chop and place in a large bowl, allow to cool. In a small bowl whisk together sherry and oil and pour over beets. Add remaining ingredients and gently toss.

    Try to use organic beets, as sugar beets are one of the foods that are GMO

    Sound delightful as I am currently dealing with GERD. Need the relief from the constant Reflux. This type of live food really sets my mind a-fire!

      Of course! I might rinse the beets rinse first, or let them sit in some water for a bit to try and remove some of the vinegar.
