Do you love a great milchig salad, but are tired of Greek salad? Beets, red onion, and feta cheese are a great combination in this unique version. Thank you to Rivka for the fantastic idea of using tiny crisp sweet potato cubes as a healthy alternative to croutons. And, of course, the salad dressing has no sugar.
