Can a salad get any more brilliant and vivid than this one? Most people roast beets, but you can actually eat them raw, and they are deliciously sweet that way. Pair that earthy sweetness with a spicy honey dressing and creamy avocado, and you’ve got a showstopper dinner side or lunch!
Beets are rich in betalain, the pigment often used in food coloring, which actually is a powerful anti-inflammatory! In addition to fighting inflammation, beets also improve cholesterol by raising the “good” cholesterol in our bodies.

3 raw beets, shaved or grated, or simply sliced thinly
1 avocado, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon spicy honey (Note: I got mine from a local beekeeper, but you could use regular honey and add a pinch of your favorite ground spicy pepper-chili, red pepper, habanero, etc.)
1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
Pinch of salt and freshly grated pepper
In a serving bowl, plate grated beets and top with slices of avocado.
Whisk together dressing using the olive oil, spicy honey, champagne vinegar, and salt and pepper.
Pour dressing over beets and avocado.
