Five B Salad

Five B Salad,

Five B Salad

Not one, not two, not three…but FIVE super healthy “B” vegetables form the basis of this salad – and it’s the Bomb! Now, granted, not everyone is keen on Beets, or even Broccoli, so use your imagination and substitute if you must. But I say, “Be Brave, Be Bold and eat the Bloomin’ ‘Begetables!”

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
