Beets & Olives Salad with Feta, Super Greens & Lemon Herb Dressing

Here is a recipe for a beet and olive salad that is pretty to look at and delicious. We had this wonderful beet salad with lemon herb dressing at our friends Swati and Tarak’s home when we went over for a holiday dinner. Swati got inspired to use a few lemons from one of many fruit trees in her hillside garden and made a Lemon Herb Dressing to go with her outstanding Super Greens, Beets and Olives Salad.
