Shaved Golden Beet & Mustard Green Salad

I picked up some golden beets the other day at the market and I thought I would make a salad out of them. Regular beets tend to be really earthy in flavor, but golden beets are much less intense with that grass/soil taste. If you don't like red beets, you may like the golden ones!

Shaved Golden Beet & Mustard Green Salad

* Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
* Cook Time: n/a
* Ingredients:
  • 3 small golden beets, shaved
  • 1 small lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 bunch mustard greens, stem removed, chopped
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1-2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste 
* Recipe:
  1. Shave the golden beets and place in a large bowl. Add the lemon juice and let it soak the beets while you prepare the rest. This will soften the beets a bit.
  2. Add the mustard greens, onion, garlic, lemon zest, and almond to the beets. Mix.
  3. Add the dijon, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix the salad well.
