(Makes 3-4 Servings)
Salad Fixins:
2 to 3 Large Beets - boiled, peeled & sliced
1 Navel Orange - peeled & cubed
Macadamia Nuts 
2-4 cups of Mixed Greens or Spinach
Place all salad fixins on a plate then top with dressing.
1 Avocado, peeled and remove seed
3 tbs of Orange Juice

Dash of Olive Oil

Orange, Carrot & Pepper Salad

(Makes 3-4 Servings)
Salad Fixins:
2 Bell Peppers (1 Orange, 1 Yellow), cut in thick strips
5-6 Carrots Peeled
1 Navel Orange - peeled & cubed
2- 4 cups of Mixed Greens or Spinach 
Goat Cheese
Toasted Almonds
Red wine vinegar & touch of walnut, sunflower or olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350. Place the carrots and bell peppers in a baking dish and toss with a little sunflower, walnut or olive oil and bake for 15+ minutes or until carrots are tender. Remove and let cool.
Place the lettuce and orange on a plate, top with carrots and peppers and top with crumbled goat cheese and almonds.

*This tastes great even without the lettuce
