  • 2 Tbsp orange juice (fresh if possible)
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Peel beets and slice in fairly thin wedges.
  3. Place them in a glass oven-safe dish (or pan) and toss in coconut oil, salt and garlic powder.
  4. Roast (bake) for approximately 30 minutes or until fork-tender.
  5. While beets are roasting, mix all ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and whisk.
  6. Can be kept  in the fridge for a few days or served warm in the salad 
  7. In a large salad bowl mix greens, onion, orange, pistachios or pecans and beets.
  8. Add desired amount of dressing and enjoy!

TIP: This recipe makes a few servings of the salad. If you would like some for leftovers do not mix in the dressing until you are ready to eat it. Save the dressing in a sealed mason jar or container in the fridge. Feel free to add in any extra leftover protein to this meal.
