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!

    This sounds so great! I love beets - raw, roasted, pickeled. I am going to make this soon - this week, as I purchased some beautiful beets yesterday. I am now planning my garden and I am going to grow all types of beets this year. Wish me well!

    I love beets. This sounds yummy! I have a wooden mallet that I use to smash almonds, which saves my kitchen counters from regular metal-headed hammers!!
