Fresh Summer Beet Salad

I love summer because all the fresh organic produce becomes available and nutrients are at their peak! Eating large salads at night is something I always look forward to because I have lots of fun seeing what I can come up with. I recently came up with this salad, motivated by the beets and their sweet, creamy texture. This salad is by far one of my favourites and I will definitely be making it again! Read on to find out how to make your own fresh summer beet salad :)

- Any kind of leafy lettuce (I eat around 1-2 pounds of greens, so you can downsize as you please)
- 3-4 dill cucumbers sliced finely (any cucumber will work, I just love dills)
- 1 zucchini chopped into cubes
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 cup sunflower sprouts
- 1 large beet, chopped into match sticks
- 1/2 avocado, diced into cubes
(I also added some herbs like dill, basil and cilantro! Just a few of each)

Toss around all the ingredients, and add a simple salad dressing like blended orange and dill, or a simple squirt of lemon, some cumin and hemp seed oil (a teaspoon or so). I normally don't put anything on my salads except some lemon and hemp seed oil every now and then.
