Beets Around the Bush Salad

Putting Color in Your Salad Theme

Instructions

In a shallow oval or round salad bowl position the pickled beets inside the outer rim while slightly overlapping each slice until you have completed a circle around the bowl. Next, place a couple fresh lettuce leaves in the center to form a cup (the bush) into which you may fill your favorite cut-up vegetables or fruit.

One of my favorite "Beets Around the Bush Salad" includes freshly cubed vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced cucumber, thinly sliced white onion and cubed avocado. I highlight my salad with a pinch of basil, a couple splashes of balsamic vinegar, and of course my favorite salt and spices - sea salt and black pepper.

But, you can let your own imagination kick-in and add the ingredients and spices which you and your guests prefer. Give it a try sometime. It is simple to make and rather delicious - even without salad dressing.

Enjoy! Ahheee!! Signature Icon
