Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • ¾ tablespoon olive oil
  • 120 g mixed salad leaves
  • 250 g cooked whole baby beets, drained and cut into quarters
  • ¾ cup mandarin segments, pith removed
  • ½ cup thinly slivered red onion
  • 30 g reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons sliced blanched almonds, skins left on if possible
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the white balsamic vinegar and olive oil; set aside.
  • Divide greens equally between two serving plates ( or 3 - 4 plates if using as a side dish)
  • Top with baby beet wedges, mandarin segments, red onion, feta, and almonds.
  • Drizzle with reserved dressing. Serve as a light meal or side dish.

How to :

  • Place uncooked baby beets (peeled and cut in half) in a large pot of boiling salted water. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until beets are tender when pierced with a knife, 15 to 20 minutes; drain. When cool enough to handle, cut each baby beet half into 3 wedges. Set aside.
