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. This is a simple raw beet salad recipe that I make all the time.
- 3 cups of shredded beets
- 3 cups green apple (optional but I love it)
- ¼ cup goat cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- Mix together and enjoy!
