Beet & Berry Salad with Avocado Basil Dressing
Beet salad with seasonal fruit and creamy avocado basil dressing. Thank you @abrapappafor this DELICIOUS recipe! 🤩🥗
3 cups Bibb lettuce
1 large red beet
1 large golden beet
1 cup cherries
1 cup blueberries
Edible flowers for fun
For the Dressing:
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp champagne vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup basil leaves
Salt & pepper to taste
Peel beets and chop into both cubes and rounds. Place in a steamer and steam for 15 minutes or until they feel tender when pierced with a fork. Set aside and allow to cool. (note: I typically wear gloves when peeling beets so my hands don't turn bright red).
Combine all ingredients for dressing in a blender, and blend until smooth. You can add more or less water depending on the thickness of dressing. I found 3/4 cup to be perfect.
Arrange lettuce, berries, and beets in a large bowl. Top with dressing. Enjoy!
