Beet Salad with Tahini Lemon Sauce - Vegan from HeatherChristo.com

I loooooove beets! And while we are in this weird in-between seasons thing (it is definitively not full Spring in Seattle) I love that beets are so easy to find and a great veggie option.

And somehow, (I suspect it is the color) my kids will actually eat beets- so I am extra prone to cooking them up and presenting them in new and delicious ways.

This pretty side dish salad is just the thing. And the fact that it is vegan makes Pia so happy and she sat down with a whole plate of these for dinner.

These would be an easy weeknight dinner side or pretty enough to serve at a dinnerparty or on Easter!
