One of last subscriptions they had a beet slaw and I loved how simple the recipe was. I took the base of their recipe and beefed it up a bit to add some more vegetables for an amazing side for dinner (or add some chicken and this would make a fantastic lunch).

Can beets be eaten raw?

Absolutely! They’re crunchier when raw, so that’s why having them julienned or thinly sliced works so well in this carrot and beet salad.

Supplies I recommend

If you don’t have a food processor you can slice the carrots and beets by hand, use a spiralizer, or a mandoline (watch your fingers, these babies are sharp).
