How to Prepare
PREHEAT OVEN. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
ROAST BEETS. Trim the ends of the beets and scrub them clean. Wrap each beet individually in aluminum foil and place in a baking dish. Bake the beets for about 50 to 60 minutes. Halfway through cooking, poke the beets with a knife or fork to judge the remaining cooking time.
CHOP BEETS. Once the beets are done, remove them from oven and take out of foil. Cool beets enough to handle, then peel away the skin and chop into bite-sized pieces.
ASSEMBLE SALAD. Add chopped kale and avocado to a large serving bowl. Add the Lemon Dijon Dressing and massage the salad until the kale is wilted and the ingredients are well mixed. Top the salad with chopped beets, apples, and hemp seeds before serving.
