My children love beet salad!

Author Notes

This is a recipe I came up with while raising my children and working on an organic farm. This is a beet recipe that was requested time and time again from children to adults. It is the perfect balance of sweet and salty with a bright tanginess from the balsamic and feta. If you are vegan, leave out the feta. The star of the show is fresh beets, greens and dill. A dash more of balsamic is wonderful depending on your taste. —Heather
