BEET SALAD WITH EDAMAME BEANS, ORANGE & LIQUORICE is a healthy, meatless meal. Walnuts goes as topping on this salad. Dressing is a mix of lemon, orange and olive oil. A healthy choice for a MeatFreeWeek. Liqourice powder is optional – but liqorice give a little extra to the taste of the whole salad. And the yellow and red beets are raw. The yellow beet taste at bit more fresh and less sweet than the red beet. I love the yellow beet.
