  • Ingredients

    Salad

    2 large beets (2)

    1 Tbsp canola oil (15 mL)

    1/2 head green cabbage, very thinly sliced (about 4-5 cups)

    2 cloves garlic, minced (2)

    1/3 cup sunflower seeds (75 mL)

    Dressing

    2 Tbsp canola oil (30 mL)

    2 Tbsp orange juice  (30 mL)

    1 Tbsp Dijon mustard (15 mL)

    1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 400℉ (200°C).  Wrap whole beets in aluminum foil.
    2. On a rimmed 13 x 18 inch (33 x 46 cm) baking sheet, place the wrapped beets and roast for about 1 hour until fork-tender (fork can be inserted easily). Remove from oven and let cool.
    3. Once beets are cool enough to handle, peel the skin and chop into small cubes. Set aside.
    4. In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Set aside.
    5. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola oil over medium-high heat. Add cabbage and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes until cabbage slightly softens and is heated through.
    6. Add heated cabbage to salad bowl, toss with dressing. Add beets and very gently fold together.
    7. Top with sunflower seeds and serve.
