I have a love affair with beets. I love them so very much. Now, until you've actually had a fresh roasted beet, I don't want to hear it. So go and buy the beets with the greens, so they are nice and fresh, chop off the tops and follow these directions here on how to roast them. They are super easy and literally taste like candy!!! Organic beets were on sale, so I had to make a big salad. For my birthday dinner, we dined at a fabulous Italian restaurant in Little Italy and while I super enjoyed my pasta, I found myself craving my healthy friend Chelsea's delish salad, so I decided that I would have to make it myself. I had my beets, so I was halfway there. This salad is fresh and super satisfying. Serves 1 hungry person or 2 sorta hungry people [I ATE the whole damn thing myself]
1 head of romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
1 cup of diced roasted beets, give or take, I could eat 3 pounds of beets...
handful of kalamata olives, sliced
1 cup of sugar snap peas, washed and trimmed

Whisk everything together and enjoy!! Next time I make this I'm going to put in a whole chopped avocado… You like where my head's at!? I thought you might. Also, don't be alarmed if you have fuchsia pea or purple poo after eating this salad. Beets aren't joking. I could eat this every single day… Enjoy!!!
