Summer Beet Salad Recipe by Dr. Daryl

Do you like beets?

Not everyone does. They are one of those controversial vegetables. But I love them, especially when you can find golden beets.

Today’s recipe is a summer salad that includes beets, peach, pistachios, butter lettuce, and green beans topped with a basil lemon vinaigrette you’re going to love.

It’s sweet, it’s savory, it’s tart, it’s fresh. It’s a lot to love, especially because it’s so good for you!

Eating like this makes it easy to go from a mostly acidic diet to a mostly alkaline one, which will give you more energy, help you lose weight, and help you stave off disease.
