This salad was my inspiration from a recent trip to my local farmers market. Instead of discarding the beet greens, I added them to my salad - WOW was I surprised and delighted with this unexpected earthy and hearty bite.
Beet and Nectarine Salad with Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea Vinaigrette
2 cups beet greens (from 2 bunches of beets)
2 cups arugula
1 nectarine, cut into wedges
6 radishes, thinly sliced
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, thinly sliced
1/4 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shaved
1 teaspoon Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup champagne vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea Vinaigrette
Add the beet greens, arugula, nectarine, radish, avocado, pistachios, and parmesan to a large bowl.
In a glass jar add the Dijon mustard, vinegar, olive oil and Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea. Seal and shake vigorously. Serve with the salad.
The salad and vinaigrette can be made a few hours ahead!
