Continuing with the summer salad theme, here is another one I tried. First off, I want to apologize for the terrible pictures. This salad is definitely not one to make for company. The beets immediately stain everything else in the salad and make a creamy mess. But if you like beets, this is a tasty one to try.
Avocado, Dill and Beet Salad
Recipe from For the Love of Food!
1 can of beets (I bought whole and cut them)
4 T of lemon juice (I used a lot more. I found the more lemon juice the more I liked it)
2 T of olive oil
1/2 tsp of ground pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 T fresh chopped dill
Drain out the can of beets. I even rinsed it out a few times in the sink until the water ran clear. Then I cut the beets in half and place it in a bowl.
Hmm that picture doesn’t look the best does it? Ah well. After I cut up the beets, I just added the sliced avocado and the rest of the ingredients. The more you stir, the more it will end up looking like that. So just a few turns is enough. Also even though the original recipe only says 4T of lemon juice, I really thought it added a great flavor. So I went a little lemon juice happy and just kept adding more to taste.
