Fresh Beet Salad with Ruby Grapefruit Vinaigrette Avocado and Feta

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Earlier last year when I was given a gift card to a major department, I used it to have some fun and buy things that I wanted, instead of things I needed. And like I usually do I headed straight to the kitchen wares. A spiralizer went into my shopping cart.....

Fast forward a few months, a move to a new home, a change in jobs, and then some surgeries and I finally got around to playing with the spiralizer last night. This golden beet salad with avocado and feta cheese, dressed with a grapefruit dijon mint vinaigrette, is the result.

Not only did we enjoy this salad for dinner, but I also get to take the leftovers with me today for lunch. I hope you give it a try, it is refreshing and delicious.

  1. I love my spiralizer--it's fun to use and vegetables are always more fun in spirals. ;-) This salad looks delicious. I love the combination of ingredients and flavors.

    Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

  2. I've been thinking about getting a spiralizer. I can't eat grapefruit, but this looks really good.

  3. Sounds so refreshing. Now I kinda want a spiralizer.
