Healthy Eats – Colorful Summer Citrus Salad

By June 24, 2015 One Comment

When the weather is warm, the thought of cooking in your kitchen is the last thing you want to do! For myself with no air…. I know!! I turn to making salads for dinner for the family. If you are a beet lover… pay attention! If you aren’t simply just take the beets out, and add more citrus for a full citrus salad.

This citrus and beet salad is not only so pretty to look at but oh so yummy and healthy for you!
