This recipe was devised out of pure lack of motivation to go to the grocery store and an empty refrigerator. And, guess what? It was an experiment that turned into my favorite new snack! Sometimes I even eat this as a light lunch.
The combination of the sweet baby beets, melt-in-your-mouth avocado, tart balsamic dressing, and crunchy walnuts is just perfect! But they’re not only tasty together; avocados, beets and walnuts are all considered healthy, detox foods. And on a side note, this recipe is also vegan, gluten-free, and totes amazeballs. If this is what clean-eating tastes like, count me in!
I haven’t yet tried adding anything else to the mix, but I’ll bet this would also be good on a bed of brown rice and/or lettuce to make it more of a meal. Maybe even some feta cheese, but then I’m not sure we could consider it a detox salad? Hehe… that’s ok. You have to get your cheese-fix in every once in a while. Don’t be afraid to experiment and add anything else you think might bring this recipe up a notch.
