Delicata Squash, Watermelon Radish, Chioggia Beet and Pomegranate Salad


TAGGED : Salad, SUGAR DETOX RECIPE

This Thanksgiving I wanted to create a show-stopping salad, so I went to the farmers market for all the bright fall colors: delicata squash, watermelon radishes, Chioggia (candy cane) beets, microgreens (amaranth, kale, and beet greens), shallots, and picked up a pomegranate as a topper.

  • 3 small watermelon radishes, cut in half moons
  • 3 medium-sized purple carrots, thinly sliced
  • sea salt, to taste
