Red, White, and Blue Beet SaladRed White and Blue Beet Salad.JPG
This 4th of July weekend you can make a healthy raw beet salad that is simple and easy! It includes spiralized beets, a tangy citrus vinaigrette, and has a sweet/savory taste as it is topped with blueberries and goat cheese! The red color from the beets, white from the goat cheese, and blue from the blueberries makes this salad perfectly patriotic!
