WATERMELON + HEIRLOOM BEET SALAD
If you are lucky enough to find locally grown organic heirloom beets, GRAB THEM ALL. These beauties are not as beet-y as their more traditional red beet counterpart. They’re crunchy, sweet, and don’t bleach your hands (big plus!). Oh, and they’re just about the prettiest things ever.
You can almost eat just watermelon and the beets alone, but that wouldn’t fly as a substantial dinner in my household so I tossed them with some salad greens, julienned basil, red onions, and a bright lemon vinaigrette. You could also add cheese or strawberries, but there’s something tantalizing about enjoying the rawness of beets and watermelons with a few greens.
