Roasted Beet and Cara Cara Orange Salad

My daily watercolors that I've been painting and posting for #the100dayproject have given me a new appreciation for color. I love the vibrant and rich contrasts that can be created with whole foods, knowing that each color has a specific antioxidant for optimal health. This is why we encourage everyone to 'eat the rainbow.'

Tonight I made this roasted beet and orange salad and paired it with a tangy citrus vinaigrette:

  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp organic honey
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
 Roasted beets, cara cara oranges with rainbow quinoa and topped with dill and walnuts.

The tangy citrus paired well with the sweetness of the roasted beets, and the walnuts added a delicious texture to the salad. Incorporating more colors into your meals is an easy way to add more nutrition and joy into your day... ENJOY!
