A quick and easy beet salad recipe.
If there were a prize for the sweetest vegetable, beets would win by a longshot! Beets contain more sugar than any other vegetable, but they are low in calories, fat, and cholesterol. Beets are good sources of vitamins A, B, and C, folate, manganese, iron, and betaines.
If there were a prize for easy salad recipes, this one would certainly be a top contender. Even though it contains beets, it requires absolutely no cooking! The best way to eat raw beets is to thinly slice or grate them. For this salad, we are using a spiralizer to achieve thin beet spirals. If you do not have a spiralizer, you could grate your beet instead.
After your beet is spiralized, all that’s left to do is add shredded carrot, sliced green onions, Dijon vinaigrette, and a pinch of black pepper. These 5 ingredients are all it takes to create this flavorful and colorful salad!
If you purchased beets with the stem and leaves still attached, don’t throw the greens out. Save and use them in another recipe. Beet greens can be eaten raw, cooked, or steamed.
