This colorful salad uses the beet greens and the beets, along with crisp apple slices, tangy orange sections and crunchy sunflower seeds. It’s a robust, wonderful mix of flavors that’s perfect for use of seasonal produce in early winter. Tip: If you don’t have raspberry vinegar, don’t sweat it: use your favorite sweet salad vinegar, like balsamic or sherry, instead.
