All of these ingredients combined to make the most interesting, pretty, and fresh tasting salad! I made the recipe as written, but perhaps next time would reduce the lemon juice just a bit.
Other than that, this is a keeper.
Great recipe. I toasted the pistachios and that brought out their flavor even more. Made it for Valentines day and roasted the beets the day before, (saved the greens for veggies), and pre-preped the ingredients the night before for quick assembly after church. It was great. I had to sub a Bosc pear but it was lovely and picked up the beet color and presented a beautiful Valentine salad. Fairly easy, especially when I could assemble it at the last minute. In retrospect, I could have cut out little heart-shaped beet slices.
