Glossy citrus beet salad

Glossy citrus beet salad

Glossy citrus beet salad is a pretty and fresh addition on your table this winter. Zesty, with hints of tangy yogurt, fresh mint and toasted sesame seeds coming through. I truly love salads even in wintertime and I was wondering how could I incorporate salads without it being a drag to eat when it’s cold outside and the perfect way I could think of was adding so much depth of flavor with this salad right here.
