Are you cooking for your Valentine tomorrow? Impress them with this super fancy, yet shockingly easy, salad!  The simplest way to make salad fancy is by using micro greens.  They are tasty and look super expensive and rare, but alas, you can find them at a Trader Joe’s near you!  In fact, I got everything for this salad at Trader Joe’s.  No you don’t have to cut the beets into little hearts, but they’re so cute and going the extra mile will score you major bonus points 🙂  You can also make this salad ahead of time, plate it, cover it and stick in the fridge until your honey comes home.  Then just dress and serve!
