Roasted Beet Salad
Besides being rich in folate and potassium, beets are loaded with beta-cyanins, which give them their purple hues as well as their anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Beet juice can stain your fingers, so you might want to slip on a pair of kitchen gloves before you peel the roasted beets here.
