    Sharon123's Note:

    Having lived in Oaxaca for about 3 years, this recipe brings back fond memories. The aniseseed gives this salad a distinctly Oaxacan touch.

      One chioggia beet replaced a standard red beet. Delicious, beautiful, healthy and the lime and zest were a welcome change from lemon. My swiss chard wasn't in good condition and replaced it with mixed greens including arugula and romaine. Cara Cara oranges for standard oranges, too. Reviewed for Veg Tag/February.

      Delicious! I loved this salad and really could eat this everyday. I roasted the beets before and used several different freshly picked lettuces. We will be having this again often. Thanks for sharing, Sharon!

      oh this was good! Very nice flavours. I liked the fact that the beet greens were used as well as the beets - just like we do them here. I loved the addition of aniseed and will do it more with beets. Thanks for a great recipe!
