Veggies by George Weekly Challenge #6, Yellow Beets!

Yellow Beet Salad with Maple Mango Vinaigrette

We enjoyed this salad so much that there was none left for pictures!  If I get some more yellow beets, I'll make it again.

Salad Ingredients:
5 small yellow beets. peeled and grated
3 small carrots, peeled and grated
handful of small fresh basil leaves (or chopped fresh basil, if leaves are large)
- combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set aside.

Vinaigrette Ingredients:
1C mango puree or nectar
1/4C apple cider vinegar
1/8C grapeseed or other light tasting oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt

- combine all ingredients in blender and pour desired amount over beet salad.  The rest of the dressing will keep for about a week in the fridge.  Toss well, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow flavours to mingle.  Serve over fresh greens with a slice of crusty bread.  Enjoy!
