Bitty Beet Side Salad

by Amie on July 22, 2009

Here is a great recipe for an ‘Itty Bitty’ side salad.  This dish pairs well with any fish- I enjoy this salad with my parchment baked halibut fillets.

RE Bitty Beet Salad: recipe ingredients do not include greek yogurt , do include olive oil, which is not in the directions, which is the misprint?

Thanks, Shirley…sorry about that. Yes, the olive oil is in the ingredient list to be mixed in with the beets, however, the Greek yogurt is used as an optional topping on the side for a bit of a tangy protein boost of flavor! Enjoy and thanks for your comment; I’d love to hear how you like this salad…let me know! Happy Holidays!

Best,

Amie
