Colourful Beet, Orange & Feta Salad
Looking for a colourful and nutritious side dish for the holidays? Beets add a vibrant colour and fresh flavour to this salad! Beets contain vitamin C, fibre, iron, and high levels of B-complex vitamin folate. Chocked full of vitamin C, fibre, iron, and high levels of B-complex vitamin folate, beets are unique for their cardiovascular and heart health benefits. Beets get their jewel-like hue from betalains, a type of natural plant pigment that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
