Golden Beet Salad with Oranges and Kale

A plate of golden beet salad with oranges and kale

Have you ever noticed that vegetables are never boring? I love that you can mix and match vegetables and fruits. Even just looking at beets, most likely you are familiar with red beets, but there are many other types of beets. Golden beets, for example, taste like the red beets, but they don't stain like the red beets, and your plate will give you a yellow/orange color to your plate. 

This beet salad with oranges and kale gives a great example of mixing and matching ingredients. You will notice in the recipe I didn't use a dressing. You can if you want, but I found that it was too much since oranges have the delicious sweet citrus flavors and kale I sautéed in a tablespoon of oil.
