Beet and Cucumber Salad http://www.davita.com/recipes/salads and salad dressings/beet-and-cucumber-salad/a/5112

Skip the lettuce and tomatoes, and try a salad that’s flavor-packed yet healthy. With just 5 ingredients – beets, cucumber, balsamic vinegar, canola oil and Gorgonzola cheese – you can create a side salad that takes center stage. Thanks to DaVita renal dietitian Dianna from New Mexico, our recipe fits into most healthy eating plans, including the dialysis and diabetic diets. It’s low in protein, fat, cholesterol, sodium and phosphorus yet the Gorgonzola ensures it’s intensely flavorful.
