This salad is so beautiful!  Puts me in mind of Valentine’s Day, though it isn’t a sweet treat.

Start with about 3 cups of mixed greens

Add 1/2 of a steamed, chopped beet

1 boiled egg (I soaked the egg in beet juice overnight for color)

A dollop of cottage cheese

1 sliced avocado



1/4 cup olive oil

1/8 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 tsp of: salt, turmeric and garlic with herbs spice (just granulated garlic would work too)

2-4 Tbs chopped pecans

1 Tbs honey

The turmeric is a fantastic inflammation fighting spice and adds a little bit of a golden glow to the vinaigrette.

This is a pretty filling lunch!

Have a happy day!
