I feel like everyone likes beets, except me. To me, they taste too earthy…and yes, I cleaned them well. However, others rave about how much they love them. If you’re a beet lover, I think you’ll like this fresh and crispy raw beet salad. Get your grater ready, this could take a while!
2 Tbsp. Rice Wine Vinegar
Juice of 1/2 lime
Pinch of Sugar
Coarse Salt, Freshly Ground Pepper
6 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 lb. red beets, peeled and grated
1/2 lb. carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 cup thinly sliced basil leaves
2 Tbsp. finely shredded fresh parsley

- Perhaps some shredded cabbage would be a good addition, but this salad really doesn’t need anything else.
