A distinctive yet simple salad to serve alongside a nice meat roast is this Paleo Grapefruit Beet Salad. The peppery taste of the arugula pairs nicely with the sweet-tart of the grapefruit and the burst of fruit flavor in the pomegranate seeds.

 

The Paleo Grapefruit Beet Salad provides a gorgeous table presentation with its lovely array of textures and colors. It fits in well in many seasons, be it holiday dinners or summer patio parties. The mix of fruit and greens is versatile as well as highly nutritious.

 

Paleo Grapefruit Beet Salad is packed with healthy antioxidants, vitamins A, C, K, folate and fiber. The ingredients in this paleo salad are easily available all year long, so it can be enjoyed during any season.
