Ingredients
  • 3 cups of Boston Bibb lettuce
  • 1 large red beet
  • 1 large yellow beet
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
Dressing
  • 1 avocado
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. Peel beets and chop into both cubes and rounds. Place in a steamer and steam for 15 minutes or until they feel tender when pierced with a fork. Set aside and allow to cool. (note: I typically wear gloves when peeling beets so my hands don't turn bright red).
  2. Combine all ingredients for dressing in a blender, blend until smooth. You can add more or less water depending on the thickness of dressing. I found 3/4 cup to be perfect.
  3. Arrange lettuce, berries, and beets in a large bowl. Top with dressing. Serve
