Orange Beet Salad

This is a nice, colorful salad for a festive meal, or simply for everyday, depending on your mood.

Since this blog has an emphasis on easy, quick & frugal vegan cooking, I'm giving the recipe with canned beets and oranges. But, if you prefer roasting your own beets and peeling & sectioning your own oranges - go for it! : )

Orange Beet Salad
Arrange in Bowl
Bed of Greens (a tender blend like Mixed Baby Greens is ideal)
1 (15oz) can Sliced Beets, drained
1 (11oz) can Mandarin Oranges, drained
A couple of handfuls broken Walnuts

Top Salad with Dressing:
Shake in jar
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
A pinch or two of Paprika
Salt & Pepper to taste

Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
