A simple salad with amazing lettuce options, like this Scarlett Butter  lettuce that is unbelievably delicious and delicate, paired with oven roasted gold beets makes a perfect accompaniment to any meal. I am obsessed with all the specialty greens from Mann’s packing, out of our very own Watsonville. Currently this company is growing these greens year round, sourcing their seeds from Europe and growing out of the Yuma. The price is right, they are picture perfect and the small heads make an easy meal for a chef or home cook.

I used my mom’s simple salad dressing, oven roasted gold beets, and black sesame seeds. Simple. Quick and delicious. You can roast the beets ahead of time and have then on hand to add to salads all week.
