in esteem โ€ขย  5 months agoย  (edited)

Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Are you beetroot lovers? Well I know some who are and some who are quite the opposite, lol. Nevertheless, whether you are or not, I must tell you that I surprise myself with the delicious flavor of this salad.

Besides, it can't get any easier to make it, yet the health benefits and nutritional value are enormous. I am sure most of you already know them, however, in case yo do not you can read it HERE about BEETROOT. About QUINOA PLEASE READ HERE. In the nutshell, they are both superfoods, there for, you would do yourself a huge favor if you try it, lol.

I also like to recommend to eat it with sweet potato oven baked fries. That way this meal is truly complete and satisfying.

Awwwwww! I am so happy to hear that. Thank you so much my Dear, you are very sweet ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ

I love beets! It's quinoa that I don't like! Everything else sounds wonderful and looks beautiful!

Oh my goodness Melinda, you are so funny. You know who hates beets? @janton,lol. You both guys should make this salad as an experiment, because I believe you would like it. The thing is, that the Miso dressing practically takes over the flavor and if I would cover your eyes and give you taste it without telling you what it is, you would have hard time guessing it โค๏ธ๐ŸŒฟโค๏ธ

Only if I can use twice as many beets and sunflower seeds and leave out the quinoa! ๐Ÿ˜€

You can have as many sunflower seeds as you wish Melinda ๐Ÿ˜

Hahaha! Then I'll do it! My CSA box will begin having beets in it soon!

Sounds like a plan Melinda! ๐Ÿ˜€

ย  ยท ย 5 months agoย 

haha! She loves beets! Oh man, I get nauseous just thinking about them. lol. I'd be willing to try that dish if someone else made it so I didn't have to see or smell the beets before they went into it.

You guys are both hilarious melinda010100................I wish I could make it for both of you to try ๐Ÿ˜

ย  ยท ย 5 months agoย 

lol...that IS really funny and I wish you could too!

Maybe someday ๐Ÿ˜€

colorful and sounds so good I do love beetroot, and have it often I used to have it every day with lunch but since I have had the hernia I find if I have too much of it I get indigestion so I have to pace myself with it these day s

Wow! You really love beetroot, lol. But yeah, you better slow down with it. Even I ate it too too much when I made this salad and I felt it, lol. Thank you so much for visiting, I am happy you like it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Apparently and I didnt know this till recently its hard to digest and if you suffer from Indigestion which I do now beetroot feeds it well LOL
