Refreshing Raw Beet Salad


Even a hater will love this salad. The addition of citrus and green onion brings some oomph to the earthiness of the beets. It’s a refreshing, filling salad that starts any meal off on the right foot.

    Beets! I love this kind of simple grated salad–the texture is so much more appealing than big chunky slices. The combination with greens is a great idea too!

    So I’m feeling a little embarrassed right now because I’ve never had a beet. Never! They really are beautiful though. :)
