Beet and Avocado Salad

September 2, 2009

Beets are an excellent way to stimulate your digestive track and fresh veggies provide a delicious source of fiber and nutrients. Beet and Avocado Salad made with ripe organic Avocados are high in healthy fat and minerals that provide a great energy boost. You may craft your own favorite dressing. I included two options below using yogurt or simply oil.

Beet and Avocado Salad Recipe for Two

  • 3-4 Small beets, boiled or roasted with skins on (this can be done in advance)
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • Salad greens – use any you like, including; fresh lettuce, spinach, arugula, purslane or chicory
  • Tomatoes, green beans, carrots, red onion, radishes or any
  • Other fresh veggies that you have on hand
  • Fresh seasonal fruit – berries, peaches, apples, citrus, and pears are all great

Choose a Dressing

No Oil Creamy Dressing

1 cup Plain yogurt
1 T Grated Spanish onion
1 tsp Lemon juice
Chopped fresh tarragon
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Oil-based Dressing

2 T Olive oil
2 T Lemon juice
Salt and pepper
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp Maple syrup

Put all ingredients in a small jar and shake vigorously until blended. Season and adjust measurements to your taste.

This recipe is great for Vata types.

So satisfying! Enjoy!
