This little dish is one of those simple, inspiring creations. I was delighted to find big bunches of beets on sale at Choices the other day, and collards are a staple in our house any time we can get them. I combined the bitterness of the greens with the sweetness of the beets, made a couple gestures with my magic wand, and voila – a delicious, nutritious light meal for two.
Ingredients (all organic) – Salad for two
1 bunch of collard greens, chopped and steamed
2 large yellow beets, sliced and steamed (usually takes about 15-20 minutes, covered)
A liberal dosing of balsamic vinaigrette
1-2 tbsp of sunflower seeds
Combine your ingredients, toss in the vinaigrette, and enjoy as a side, or dish up a heftier portion for a main.
