Beet, Apple, Spinach Salad With Almonds And Yogurt Garlic Dressing~Yum Yum!

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Anyone up for a healthy and yummy salad? Sure you are! Take a look!


2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 cup baby spinach
2 whole, fresh beets
1 small apple
1 clove garlic
1/2 oz almonds


One day ahead; roast beets. Quarter beets and bake for 1 hour on 350 F heat or until a fork goes in easily. Cover, store in refrigerator.
Dressing; to taste, finely mince garlic and mash with a pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle (if you have one). Add a splash of balsamic vinegar and plain Greek yogurt. Mix well and store in refrigerator.
Put almonds in a bag and smash with a hammer. (Cooking with hammers is fun!)
Slice apple.
Add all ingredients and dressing to a bowl and mix well. Enjoy!

I hope that you have a healthy and proactive day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh my! Yes, I totally want to try this salad. I've never cooked a fresh beet in my life, I've always bought the jarred ones, I'm excited to try it.

    LOL! Cooking with hammers IS fun! When I have had a particularly wretched day (and that doesn't really happen often, but when it does . . . !) I make Swiss Steak Pounding out the round steak is therapeutic!

HUGS and blessings for your Sunday.

    This sounds delish! I do also like raw beet in my salads -- especially the pretty candy cane striped ones!

    This sounds amazing. The beets don't come out mushy do they?
