Zero Waste Recipe: Beet Greens Salad with Carrot Top Pesto Dressing

Zero Waste Spring Salad with Beet Greens & Carrot Top Pesto Dressing


1 bunch beet tops (Emadi Acres Farm)

1 large carrot, peeled and sliced (Emadi Acres Farm)

1-2 turnips, thinly sliced (Fruitful Hill Farm)

1-2 radishes, thinly sliced (Fruitful Hill Farm)

Add-ins: Whatever else you have on hand! We used leftover pine nuts from the carrot top pesto we made, green onion, and pecan parm.


Don’t toss out those beet greens! They’re one of the most beneficial greens you can eat, and are packed with even more nutrients and antioxidants than the beets themselves.  Wash them well and toss together with the remaining ingredients. For the dressing, we used our carrot top pesto and it was delicious!
