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.
How to make a beet salad
Supplies I recommend
- Food processor – not necessary but makes shredding the carrots/beets so easy, or if you have a spiralized attachment that works too!
- Vegetable peeler
- Cutting board
