Looking for something a tad more salty? Try adding more celery.
Wanting to add more of a kick? Try adding cayenne pepper, hot sauce, black pepper, or jalapeno.
Prefer something a bit more acidic? Add some lemon juice!
How about something a little more smoky or tangy? Worcestershire sauce to the rescue!
Try adding more greens, (like lettuce or more watercress), making sure you avoid ones that will throw off the taste balance too much.
Leave the stems on the leafy greens – they typically contain a lot of flavor and juice. Coming from the farm, leafy greens usually have the most dirt on the leaves and need to be thoroughly washed.
Remove the beet top ends and clean the bottoms thoroughly. If they are small in size, remove the bottom skinny part as well.
