Is holiday overindulgence leaving you feeling blah? Try this simple yet tasty cleansing beet salad for a pick me up.
3 medium-large beets
1 bunch cilantro, chopped (if you're a cilantro hater, use parsley)
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lime
1 clove garlic, finely chopped or crushed
1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Wash beets in a large container with a lid. If you don't have a container with a lid, use foil to cover. Roast 1 hour or until tender. Remove from oven and let cool with lid on.
When the beets are cool, run them under a small stream of water in the sink. The skin should come off easily, if not, gently use your fingers to help.
Cut beets into bite size cubes.
In a large bowl whisk olive oil, lime juice, garlic and sea salt. Add beets and cilantro and mix thoroughly. Enjoy!
This salad will keep several days in the fridge. Keep a batch around to help you feel better after holiday over-indulgences.
