Red & Gold Beet Salad

beet_saladRecipe by Ellen Troyer and the Biosyntrx staff for Biosyntrax
After attending the annual Colorado Vision Summit in Denver last Saturday, the Biosyntrx team stopped in Castle Rock, Colorado, at the new VistaVino Modern Grill for drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the way back to Colorado Springs. 
 
The restaurant motto, “Good food, nice people,” paired with a delightful Tuscan focus has quickly gained VistaVino a loyal following.  
 
We chose the Biosyntrx traditional "on-the-road" calamari and red and gold sliced beets with spiced pecans and blue cheese dressing.
Both dishes were fabulous.  
 
In keeping with our commitment to showcase local farmers market produce for the rest of summer 2015 Tasty Tuesdays, the photo above is our Monday staff lunch version of sliced red and gold beets with blue cheese, candied mixed nuts and green sprouts. We dressed this with a simple three parts basil flavored olive oil to one part red wine vinaigrette. Click here for more
