Food: Green Salad with Beets, Carrots & Apples with Pink Vinaigrette

One of my favorite meals is salad, whenever I have odds and ends in the fridge I try to make a salad out of it! Here's a delicious one that I make the effort to plan ahead of time. Not only is it healthy but it will have everyone coming back for more!

It's a pretty simple recipe the bonus being that its a flavor party despite its easy directions!

Green Salad with Beets, Carrots &  Apple with Pink Vinaigrette

1 head of lettuce, washed & torn (Romaine or mixed greens)
1 carrot, julienned
1 small beet, julienned
1 apple, sliced thinly
1-2 green onions, sliced thinly
1 handful each of toasted pecans & pepitas

Add the lettuce into a large bowl and layer the remaining 4 ingredients over top. Sprinkle with pecans and pepitas.

Pink Vinaigrette
1 heaping teaspoon dijon mustard
1 heaping teaspoon cherry jam (though raspberry would be nice too)
juice of 1/2 an orange
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive or canola oil
pinch of salt & a good grind of black pepper

Pour all vinaigrette ingredients into a small lidded jar and shake, shake, shake until completely mixed.

Pour over salad and toss. Serves 2 to 4.
