  4. I love golden beetroots - as much for the beautiful colour as much as the taste! And pumpkin seeds are one of my favourite salad toppers, especially dry fried til they pop!

  5. I recently found some yellow beets at the organic market. They are so delicious in salads. I've dressed them with a little apple cider vinegar, maply syrup and chipotle powder. I hope I can find more of them next time.

  6. This looks amazing! I've very new to the beet game and have not tried golden beets but I've heard they have a less "earthy" flavor going on? I would love to make this a roasted beet salad in the fall too!
