Beet Cranberry Salad

We’re getting great crops of all things green, from the greenhouse.  However, in addition to the greens, I want some other veggies.  While shopping in my pantry, I found some organic jellied cranberry sauce that I bought.   And for some reason, I immediately connected it to the luscious organic sweet beets that I buy at Costco.  With a couple other ingredients, a delicious spring dish happened – Beet Cranberry Salad.
