Yes, even in winter there is the possibility of a bright, spring-like salad. During a recent discovery of Buyers’ Best Friend, I walked away with some basil infused olive oil and orange balsamic vinegar and have been eager to test them out.
I boiled and skinned the beets, then marinated them overnight in the basil olive oil (2 tbs), orange balsamic vinegar (1 1/4 tbs), honey (1 tsp) and basil leaves. The beets soaked up the sauce beautifully, which means I really should have brought some extra olive oil with me for lunch.

This is beautiful! Looks so fresh and appetising.
Thanks! So easy and yes, very fresh and tasty. You don’t even need to marinate the beets overnight if you don’t have time. Just make sure to have a little extra dressing to massage into the kale!
I love beets and this looks fantastic!
