Beet and Pomegranate Jewel Salad
In the deli department, there are many customer favorites. But one that always stands out to me are the beet salads. If they are missing from the case, people always ask when they are going to be made again. I do not blame them, as beets are one of my favorites as well. Its lovely color, sweet flavor and nutritional density make it very desirable. One of my favorite ways to serve them is with citrus fruits, the flavors are perfect together. So, I decided to share with you one of my favorite winter salads featuring red and gold beets! It is a show stopper that I love to serve to guests.
