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

With a sprinkling of briny olives, tangy Feta cheese, and sweet beets this is a rather eclectic salad.  This wonderful beet salad with lemon herb dressing was made by my friend Swati when we went over to our friends Swati and Tarak’s home for a holiday dinner with the family.  For the dressing Swati got inspired to use a few lemons from one of many fruit trees in her hillside garden and made a Lemon Herb Dressing  for her outstanding Super Greens, Beets and Olives Salad.
