I'm really impressed with this simple salad, it turned out so well and I would definitely serve for company. I love that it uses the beet tops and the simple method of blanching them with the onions is perfect, took away the sharpness of the onions which ended up being super sweet. I made most of it a day ahead of time, just tossed the 2 parts together with the dressing and tossed the nuts on before serving. I found it wasn't quite enough dressing so I added a splash or two extra of oo & vinegar. Such a pretty salad, I can't wait to make again!

This was terrific!! Beautiful balance of flavors and jam packed with nutrition. I loved the crunch the pistachios added and the mint really took it to the next level!! YUM!! I didn't have the golden beets (can't get them here) but I really wanted to try this so I just used regular. Only about half of my beet greens were small enough to eat so I used a bit of kale to make up for it and it was lovely. Thanks so much CG for a really yummy way to enjoy one of my favorite veggies. Made for Veg*n Swap #34!!!
