Beetroot Tarragon Salad

Beetroot Tarragon Salad2

This recipe brings the wonderfully earthy and sweet beetroot with the bitterness of dandelion and arugula.

Dandelion and arugula (part of the crucifers family) have special healing properties – they are especially beneficial for the liver detoxification pathways that get rid of metabolized estrogens.
