I must confess, as a child I was quite the picky eater. At a young age I decided that one of my “do not eat” foods was beets. I had put them in the same category as brussels sprouts and broccoli. Looking back, I feel somewhat guilty for discriminating against these delicious and nutritious vegetables. Now that I’m older and wise enough to appreciate all that the beet has to offer, I can’t seem to get enough!
Have you heard the saying “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!”. Well, the beet definitely has it. Beets provide us with B vitamin, folate, manganese, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus. Wow! Luckily, the only thing you really need to remember is that beets are nutritious and delicious, so dig in!
The recipe I have provided here uses raw beets. However, beets are also very delicious when cooked. I’ve made a similar salad by adding chopped cooked beets, carrots, and zucchini. I’ll then add some dressing and serve it cold. There are all kinds of variations. Feel free to experiment and have fun!
