Beet Salad with Basil-Sage Pesto

April 24, 2017

This is perfect for a light lunch! We brought ours on our trip to the vineyard today along with some crackers, mango, banana, and clementines. Of course we paired our salad with some crisp wine! It was a beautiful sunny day and Lucy enjoyed herself too! Here she is, playing with her daddy!

 

This salad kept us energized and satisfied to keep up with our sweet girl! The pesto is simple and pretty tart to offset the sweetness of the salad. I'd say it's s perfect pair!

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

*Feel free to add more sage! I only had 1/3 of a cup left but would probably have put more if I had it!
