      Notes:

      • Beets - We love the taste and crunchy texture of fresh beets with orange, but you can easily substitute oven-roasted beets. 
      • Red Walnuts - We absolutely love the richness and almost meaty quality that Red Walnuts add to this recipe. Check out our friends at Bertagna Nut Co. for the best we've found!
      • Presentation - we suggest the half moon shape for ease of beautiful presentation, but the salad will taste great no matter how you slice it.

      Food For Thought:

      The beauty of servings salads is the flexibility to add or remove ingredients without complicating the preparation and still maintaining a complex integration of flavors. Want to avoid dairy or serve this salad to a Vegan? Remove the feta. Does someone have a tree nut allergy? Hold the walnuts. Does someone have an aversion to spice? Claim their snacking cacao for yourself! 😉

      Nutrition:

      I have calculated the nutrition using all of the ingredients listed above. If you remove the feta and walnuts, you will primarily reduce the protein (2g), fat (5g) and calories (100).
