Salinity™ Salts: Heavenly Blue Beet Salad Recipe

A refreshing blend of cucumber and beet with accents of spice provided by radish and red onion. After gently drizzling our Rogue's Heavenly Blue Cheese Finishing Salt mustard vinaigrette, plus an extra pinch or two (maybe even three) for additional flavor and color, you’ll be a true finishing salt convert. We’re certain of it.  Serves 4.
