Garlicky Beet Salad with Yogurt and Walnuts

Beet Salad with Yogurt and Walnuts

Tell me what comes to your mind when you read the blog title? Let me guess. Perhaps, just like me, you think it sounds super duper healthy? Am I right or am I right? I think I am right. Health on a plate, literally. Beets, garlic, plain yogurt, walnuts. Each ingredient in this salad I’ll write about speaks of nutrition and health benefits.

Beets

Beets? Vitamin C, fiber, anticancer properties, boost stamina, fight inflammation, and so on. Garlic? Packed with vitamins, wards off viruses, improves cholesterol levels, among other good things.

Walnuts

Walnuts? Powerful antioxidants, good for you. And yogurt, good old plain yogurt is an excellent source of protein and is loaded with calcium and vitamin D. So, what’s this salad all about? Health! Plus, it is beyond delicious. Every time I make it for our guests, I receive rave reviews.
