A lot of people hate beets and it is because their first taste is with pickled beets which are…okay. But I wouldn`t want to eat them every day.
Before I left to travel I would get an organic food box each Thursday and then had to quickly figure out how to cook some of the contents. I was not about to pickle beets so I quickly searched and found a recipe for raw beet salad. I loved it so much I ate 4 bowls that day.
That was a problem.
I don`t want to disgust you but on an innocent trip to the bathroom I thought I was going to die from internal bleeding.
Beets make everything red. Everything.
You are not dying. Your kidney did not just drop out. It`s just the beets. Okay disgusting but necessary warning over. Let`s get to the good part.
If you have a food processor this salad takes two seconds to make and the nice thing about shredded beets is that they actually keep in the fridge for up to a week.
