Beet, Lemon, Mint, Cilantro, Red Onion, Lettuce- Beets with Flavor

These herbs also flatter the versatile beet. Sever with Yogurt cheese or Havarti with dill and dark bread to make a salad meal.

1 ½ pounds beets, cooked and peeled

Finely grated zest of 1 lemon plus 2 tablespoons juice

2 tablespoons finely diced red onions

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons chopped mint

½ teaspoon ground coriander

Salt and Pepper

6 tablespoon olive oil

4 handfuls salad greens
