3. In the same pot of hot water, add one bunch of beet greens for about 45 seconds until they are wilted for the salad. Once done, set them aside.
4. For the dressing: In a mixing bowl, add and combine together the olive oil, corn oil, salt, pepper, sugar, cilantro and lime juice. Whisk the dressing well for 30 seconds until thick.
