Golden Beet and Garlic Salad

Posted in Salads

My mom always makes this awesome beet salad. With olive oil and lemon and garlic, I just love it! But if there’s anything I don’t like about it is the fact that the beets always make it look like I just murdered someone in my kitchen, right there on the cutting board, and I can’t even hide the evidence because my hands are all red as well. Apparently there’s an alternative! And when I found it I was super excited. I was going shopping at Costco as usual when I saw a bag of “Golden Beets”, it’s the same beets but yellow. I grabbed it and figured I’d find what to do with it later on.

After I read about it a bit I discovered that it is the same beet except for the color and apparently people prefer to use it because guess what, it’s less messy! Yes! Yes! Yes!

So now I can make my favorite salad without looking like a serial killer, and guess what? I get to share it with you!
