It's time to start utilizing one of the season's most nutrient dense foods. This simple salad combines the sweetness of beets and husk cherries or tomatoes with the nutty sharpness of the walnut dressing. This recipe is great for post-cleanse, especially Clean fans who are pregnant. The full Clean Program isn't recommended during pregnancy or nursing, but the beneficial vitamin B and iron provided by this salad are approved and not to be missed.
