Makes 4 servings

2 lbs beets, scrubbed, peeled and thinly sliced
6 medium carrots, thinly sliced
3 T olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 T orange juice
1 1/2 t sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar
6 c mixed greens
1/2 c crumbled feta cheese**
1/3 c chopped walnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 450.

On a rimmed baking sheet, toss beets and carrots with 1 1/2 T olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender, about 30 minutes, tossing halfway through. Allow to cool.

While vegetables are roasting, whisk together the orange juice, vinegar, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, toss the mixed greens with half of the dressing and transfer to a serving platter. Toss the beets and the carrots with the remaining dressing and add to the platter. Add feta cheese and walnuts before serving.

**Remove cheese for Whole30.

Makes about 60 oz

1.5 quarts of a variety of hot peppers (red chile, jalapeno, super hot)
28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/4 lb tomattilos
1/2 lb roma tomatoes
1/2 white onion
1/4 red onion
1 yellow pepper
2 green peppers
8 garlic cloves
splash of white vinegar
3 T lime juice
2 T olive oil
1 t salt

Preheat oven to broil.

Boil tomatillos for 5 minutes. Cool, quarter and place in blender. Chop white onion and 4 cloves garlic and add to blender. Blend until pureed. Remove and set aside.

Roast/broil large yellow and green peppers and roma tomatoes in a glass pan until skin is crispy. Allow to cool and remove skin. Add peppers, tomatoes, chopped red onion, remaining garlic, lime juice, and olive oil to food processor and run until chopped and smoothed, but not pureed.

Clean, derib, and deseed hot peppers while wearing gloves. Finely chop.

Add blender mix, food processor mix, and chopped hot peppers to large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add can of diced tomotoes to pan with salt. Stew for about 2 hours or until reduced.

In the meantime, wash the lids and bands in hot, soapy water and allow to air dry completely. Sterlize jars by washing in hot, soapy water, then placing in the oven at 225 on baking sheet for 20 min. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; enough to cover highest jar by 1 inch.

Using tongs carefully remove each hot jar from the oven and fill with reduced salsa mixture. Using a funnel, fill to within 1/4 inch of the top. Wipe off rims with a clean dry paper towel. Place a dry lid on each jar and close finger-tip tight. Using tongs, place each of the jars in the boiling water and boil for 5-10 minutes. Remove from water with tongs.
