My Pretty Salad- Roasted Red Pepper and Beet Salad
A nice fresh salad goes so well with just about any dish. The reason I like this Roasted Red Pepper and Beet Salad is that it can be served as a side dish or made into a main dish by adding your choice of meat and, if vegetarian some rice or couscous. I call this a "pretty salad" that is perfect when having guests because the colors make it so appetizing and vibrant!
