Beet, Broccoli And Mache Salad With Almond Vinaigrette Recipe

Salads are so much fun to put together – finding your favorite ingredients, taking the time to prep your dish, and layering in the great flavors you’ve found can be a cathartic experience. But salads are an easy dish to fall into the same patterns about as well, especially if you have a limited product selection where you normally shop.

Beet Broccoli And Mache Salad With Almond Vinaigrette

This salad combines the earthiness of beats, the bitterness of raw broccoli, and the sweetness of red bell peppers, all with an almond vinaigrette to meld the flavors together. The end result is a salad blend that’s vegetarian-friendly, quick to prepare, and perfect for a light lunch or to add a protein of your choice for a more filling meal.

Have you ever used mache before? While this green isn’t as common in many western markets, it’s a delicious variation on some of the more common salad bases we see frequently. Unlike many greens, mache has a distinctive nutty flavor, but it is just as soft and raw as green like spinach (no blanching required here).

It also includes a host of nutritional benefits, including Vitamin C, iron, and potassium. To find this green, try checking with your local farmer’s market to see if anyone grows it. If you’re in a pinch, this salad can also be made with an alternative green as needed.

To make this a complete meal, try adding some baked chicken or pork to your bowl. You can also serve this alongside a great salmon filet for a more elegant meal.
