I think I’ve done it again with this amazing, can’t-stop-eating salad. This Beet Salad and Feta recipe with feta cheese (whipped) and pistachios is seriously going to up your salad game in the best possible way.

🍲 Ingredients

Beets: This root vegetable has a lot of great benefits including being a source of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Holy! That’s a lot, right? I love that they are a great iron source as it can be hard to get enough iron in your system, especially when you are eating primarily plant-based.

A lot of people don’t really think of eating beets, but they are so versatile. You can throw them into a salad like this, roast them up, and season them however you wish to eat as a side dish, grill them on the BBQ, or add them to a gourmet grilled cheese, the options are endless. How do you like to eat beets?!


Pistachios: Pistachios are so tasty and have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory traits. These special nuts can help lower your chances for cardiovascular disease and are high in fiber, minerals, and unsaturated fat that can help with your blood sugar, and blood pressure as well.
