Ready to beautify your salad?
Beautifully simple to make, beautiful flavors, come on now–just look at that color!
Yup, you need this salad dressing in your life. Even if you think you don’t like beets, this is the perfect place to start.
Brace yourself for the awesomeness of beets…
A cup full of beets packs a serious nutritional punch! They are a great source of:
- vitamin B6

Just a little bit more of the science-y stuff before we get to the recipe…
Ever wonder what gives beets that amazing magenta hue?
They’re called betalin pigments and they are kind of amazing!
These pigments support your body’s Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body.
So, drizzling this dressing over your salad not only makes that salad instantly tastier and gorgeous (which makes you instantly smile) but it’s actually going to help clean out your body and give you extra nutrients?
Okay, let’s do this!
I’m going to show you how to make this dressing two ways…
First, the easy way…
You just go out to the store and grab a container of ready-made beet hummus! Might I recommend Trader Joe’s brand–because it’s low in oil and sodium! I’ve also seen it at Sprouts and Whole Foods.
Best part? You don’t have to bust out your high-speed blender! You can go old-school with your just your whisk and your will (heck, even a fork will suffice).
But what if you’re on Dr. Fuhrman’s 6 week plan and need to avoid oil altogether?
I’ve got you covered!
Make a batch of this No-Oil Beet Hummus recipe to use as the base for this dressing!
Either way you go, you’re going to love this bright, slightly sweet dressing.
Soon you’ll be drizzling it on everything! Might I suggest black beans, fresh avocado, and baked sweet potatoes, to start.
