Golden Beet and Watercress Salad


I’ve been loving golden beets. It seems like a crazy thing to love but they are slightly more mellow than red beets and that makes them perfect for salads, especially when fried. This is a great salad for yourself at lunch or make a large bowl of it to share.

Ingredients:

  1. Bunch of watercress
  2. 1 radish, sliced thinly
  3. 1 golden beet
  4.  1 Avocado, sliced
  5.  Balsamic vinaigrette

To cook the beets: first slice the beets then, steam the beets in the microwave until tender. Seer the beets in a frying pan coated with olive oil over medium-high heat until golden brown, flip occasionally. Let cool.

Assemble the salad: layer the watercress, beets, radish and avocado onto a plate. Drizzle with your favorite balsamic vinaigrette. Bon appétit!
