This beet salad will change your mind about beets. It’s so simple and yet I’m completely addicted to it.
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 do not 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 now that my disgusting but necessary warning is 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.
If you don’t have a food processor you could also use a spiralizer (we love this one) or even the grater box you may use for cheese.
I love raw shredded beets so much that I sometimes cheat and just put a yogurt based bottled ranch dressing on it but this raw beet recipe is definitely my favourite way to eat beets.
Plus they are good for your liver so you can have red wine all drink and eat beets all day.
