This salad may look like Christmas but it has the bright, refreshing flavors of summer. I put this salad recipe together inspired by the Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad from True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach. (I highly recommend that restaurant if you're ever in the OC) I love beet salads and the pomegranate and mint added some brightness to the earthy flavor beets. This is my perfect summer salad.
All the ingredients can be purchased at Trader Joe's so it really is quick and easy to make!
Steamed Beets, quartered (I buy the already steamed packs from Trader Joe's. One box is 80 calories)
Pomegranate seeds (again, you can buy this pre-packed at Trader Joe's)
Goat cheese crumbles
Mint leaves, finely chopped
As always, I toss everything into a Glad container and give it a good shake so there's little to no clean up and the olive oil coats the salad evenly!
